We recall the values he upholds and the ideals he adopted, such as his dignity and dedication, candor, and respect for the wishes of all Kenyans. Kenya’s economy grew steadily under Kenyatta’s leadership as finance minister and vice president, fueled by a commodities boom and fiscal monetary policies that were the cornerstone of his economic theory.
