The East Africa’s biggest economy Kenya is going to the elections on the 4th of March. And all pointers and projections declare that the son of Jomo Kenyatta will become the next and fourth President of Kenya.  Jomo Kenyatta is the founding father of Kenya. Kenyatta was called Mzee – an old very wise man.

On June 1, 1963, Mzee Jomo Kenyatta became the first Prime Minister of self-governing Kenya. At midnight on December 12, 1963, at Uhuru Stadium, amid world leaders and multitudes of people, a new nation was born and a year later, on December 12, 1964, Kenya became a republic with Mzee Kenyatta as the President.

Mzee Jomo Kenyatta was a highly educated man. He is acclaimed from all quarters of the world as a true son of Africa, a visionary leader. During his tenure, Kenya enjoyed political stability, and economic progress. In 1974, he declared free primary education up to primary grade 4.He is also remembered for urging Kenyans to preserve their culture and heritage.

And now his son Uhuru will become the fourth President of Kenya following after him.

According to Forbes Magazine Uhuru Kenyatta is now the richest man in Kenya. His is not an ill gotten wealth or some from some kind of a exclusive club called black economic empowerment but measured prudence use of land he inherited from Mzee Jomo Kenyatta.

Uhuru Kenyatta has a massive support not only from his central province backyard and his Kikuyu ethnic group. Uhuru’s first short at the presidency was in 2002 when he went against the current president Mwai Kibak. During that time after the elections were declared he came close second with over 1.5 million votes after the winning Mwai Kibaki.

Wellcome President Uhuru Kenyatta! Africa indeed needs its brightest thoroughly educated minds to move Africa Forward
