Kenyans have been urged to read the Kenya Year Book to familiarise themselves with developments and opportunities.
While launching the second edition of the book in a Nairobi hotel, Information and Communications Minister Samuel Poghisio said the Yearbook is an annual publication that gives an account of government programmes and policies.
He said it also accounts for key milestones achieved in the country’s development agenda as guided by Vision 2030, which is anchored on three key pillars of social, political and economic development.
Mr Poghisio said the 2011/12 Yearbook also celebrates the achievements of Kenyans across various sectors. “Moreover, it recognises institutions that have made significant contributions to the lives of Kenyans,” he said.
Information PS Bitange Ndemo said the Government is determined to improve the overall social-economic standards Kenyans.
“This is an initiative that helps motivate its people to increasingly work harder for their growth and prosperity,” Mr Ndemo said adding: “The book focuses on developments such as Konza City, infrastructure like the Thika Super Highway and development of bypasses, the Constitution of Kenya 2010, and devolution to name just a few. Having all this information readily available in one book not only enhances our awareness as citizens of this great country, but serves as a great tool to market Kenya to the rest of the world,” the PS said.
Esther Kamweru, the Kenya Yearbook editorial board chairman commended her team for doing a better job.
