you shall not be poor book by apostle Richard E S Takim
There Shall Be No Poor Among You is a careful and comprehensive but not overly technical study of the biblical portrait of the poor and poverty. Hoppe introduces the study with the socioeconomic structures of ancient Israel and Roman Palestine, then proceeds systematically to examine the biblical evidence, including that of the Old Testament, New Testament, Apocrypha, and rabbinic literature.
The Bible describes the poor and poverty in a variety of ways.
Sometimes poverty is a curse; other times it is a blessing. Sometimes the text is concerned about material poverty exclusively; other times poverty becomes a metaphor for another reality. Hoppe describes the various ways the Bible deals with the poor, but his fundamental conclusion is that the Bible never idealizes the reality of material poverty and the oppression of the poor by the rich. Even when the Bible speaks of “poverty of the spirit” as a positive religious metaphor, God requires humans to seek social justice.
Hoppe suggests that just as poverty is not idealized in the Bible, so the poor should be a priority of every community of faith. Ancient Israel, early Judaism, Jesus, and the first Christians did not forget the poor, and if believers today wish to be faithful to their biblical heritage, neither can they.
This book provides a practical background for scholars and is a primer for a significant theological motif.
It will be useful in the classroom (in college and seminary courses in biblical ethics and social justice), as well as in serious Bible study. Study questions will help readers and students further probe history, theology, and application.

Uhuru Kenyatta: Promises Broken Paperback by Joe Khamisi
This book is about Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta. It focuses on his upbringing, life, and political career, with emphasis on the ten years he served as president of the Republic of Kenya.
It looks at his rise to power from his early years as a scion of one of the most prominent and wealthy families in Kenya, to a suspect at the International Criminal Court (ICC) on charges related to the 2007 post-election violence, to the president of one of Africa’s biggest economic powerhouses in Africa. The book also brings in friends and foes among them Raila Amolo Odinga and William Samoei Ruto.
Uhuru was not a dictator, but like his father, he wielded power, almost unchallenged. He muted the opposition, enacted retrogressive laws, disregarded the judiciary, and violated the constitution. He allowed cartelists, relatives, and friends, to exploit the country in cahoots with corrupt public officers.
President between 2013 and 2022, Uhuru left an unprecedented debt burden on Kenyans that will take generations to pay. With borrowed money, he built huge infrastructure projects including highways, dams, health centres, and stadiums, even as half of the population lived in poverty and joblessness.
Son of the Founding Father, Jomo Kenyatta, Uhuru failed to stop runaway corruption, wastage of resources, impunity, extra-judicial killings, and outright theft of public money.
It is a compelling, informative, and resourceful book for everyone.

Britain’s Gulag,The brutal of the empire in kenya;Caroline ElkinsKShs1,950.00Read more
Only a few years after Britain defeated fascism came the Mau Mau uprising in Kenya – a mass armed rebellion by the Kikuyu people, demanding the return of their land and freedom. The draconian response of Britain’s colonial government was to detain nearly the entire Kikuyu population of 1.5 million and to portray them as sub-human savages. Detainees in their thousands –possibly a hundred thousand or more –died from exhaustion, disease, starvation and systemic physical brutality. For decades these events remained untold.
Caroline Elkins conducted years of research to piece together this story, unearthing reams of documents and interviewing several hundred Kikuyu survivors. Britain’s Gulag reveals for the first time, the full savagery of the Mau Mau war and the ruthless determination with which Britain sought to control its empire.

Execution, The discipline of getting things done;Larry Bossidy & Ram CharanKShs2,995.00Add to cart
Disciplines like strategy, leadership development, and innovation are the sexier aspects of being at the helm of a successful business; actually getting things done never seems quite as glamorous. But as Larry Bossidy and Ram Charan demonstrate in Execution, the ultimate difference between a company and its competitor is, in fact, the ability to execute.
Execution is “the missing link between aspirations and results,” and as such, making it happen is the business leader’s most important job. While failure in today’s business environment is often attributed to other causes, Bossidy and Charan argue that the biggest obstacle to success is the absence of execution. They point out that without execution, breakthrough thinking on managing change breaks down, and they emphasize the fact that execution is a discipline to learn, not merely the tactical side of business. Supporting this with stories of the “execution difference” being won (EDS) and lost (Xerox and Lucent), the authors describe the building blocks–leaders with the right behaviors, a culture that rewards execution, and a reliable system for having the right people in the right jobs–that need to be in place to manage the three core business processes of people, strategy, and operations.
