Abstract
During my inauguration as the President of the Republic of Kenya on 30th December 2002. I indicated that my number one priority was going to be the economy. I chose to focus on the economy because the country had lost a lot of ground following several years of economic neglect by the previous administration, which was o· crly preoccupied with politics. The results of the several years of economic neglect were deepening poverty and erosion of the significant gains that had been made on the social front in the 1960s and 1970s. as retlected in the deterioration in most social indicators such as literacy and life expectancy rates while unemployment rose to alarming proportions. In addition, all critical institutions. which provide basic social services, almost collapsed due to mismanagement. corruption, and unnecessary political interference.
