Kenya's Economic Bible



Mzee Jomo Kenyatta tasked Tom Mboya with the formulation of Sessional Paper no. 10 of 1965: African Socialism and its Application to Kenya. Mzee understood that Mboya was a policymaker par excellence.

And Tom Mboya did such a splendid job that Mzee Jomo Kenyatta termed the policy document as Kenya's ECONOMIC BIBLE. It engendered prosperity with equity.

Today, as we celebrate 52 years, our economic blueprint - Vision 2030 - does not vividly espouse our aspirations as a country, at least in comparison to Mboya's 'economic bible.'
