The Jubilee government started with the president of the republic of Kenya and his deputy president indicted by the International Criminal Court and with Al Shabaab throwing grenades and launching terror attacks left, right and centre. Within no time, the Jubilee Government managed to sort out the security situation, dealt with the International Criminal Court completely and Kenya has basically restored it’s image at home and abroad. The Jubilee government first year was a serious security disaster; but they have fixed this; with the firing of the 3 incompetent people; David Kimaiyo, Joseph Ole Lenku and Gichangi of NIS and appointment of new People [Nkaissery,Boinnet & Gen Waweru]; and of course the Jubilee government has done great with Safaricom/Huawei investment of 10 Billion to put CCTV and such technology in Nairobi & Mombasa, more police equipment and the works.
Most importantly the Jubilee government seem to have reset the relationship with world powers on their terms without bribing anyone. The defiance of western “consequences” in 2013 has reset the bully relationship and now those western envoys know their place in Kenya.
So Jubilee is not just PR – behind the scenes – they’ve knocked down specifics – and now tourists are flooding back in.
Now Japan is hosting their Africa summit in Nairobi. John Kerry is come over recently. It is only during the Jubilee Government reign that Kenya has experienced the influx of high profile leaders including United states president Barack Obama, the Catholic Church head pope Francis, Israel prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Indian Prime minister Narendra Modi and now Japanese prime Minister amongst others. This in itself is not a mean fete. The jubilee government led by president Uhuru Kenyatta and deputy president William Ruto have a great charm offensive and world class PR.
The Jubilee government is by far the best government we have ever had.
