Vision 2030 has been delayed by 7 years while we wait for the water to boil for the tea.
What do Moses Wetangula, Njeru Robinson Githae, Wycliffe Oparanya, Sally Kosgei, Soita Shitanda, Kiraitu Murungi, some more of their colleagues and a few businesspeople have in common?
They allow their head of state make a couple of hundred potential investors (admittedly, there was an entourage of sycophants, too) wait 37 minutes. Imagine Wilson Kipsang arriving 37 minutes late for the start of the OLYMPIC marathon event.
Then they stand up to applause (on Moses’ command – both the rising and clapping) and start speechifying, confusing things that sound sunny and the cold, grey reality of July in Nairobi.
The flights, cars, access to the beautiful Mansion House… These things come with responsibility. Kenya has the opportunity, but not the right, to become a middle-income country. (Thank goodness for a modicum of reality from a Russian bank, though none is more deaf than one that doesn’t want to hear.)
– A wa Njoroge, 31st July 2012, Mansion House, London.
Andrew, did you go to the Mansion House Conference?
