Kenya’s Tax Czar: Autobiography MG Waweru (SoftBack) by MG Waweru

MG Waweru came to the public limelight in 2003 when he was appointed the Commissioner-General of Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA). With his clarion call, “Kulipa Ushuru ni Kujitegemea, he presided over impressive transformation of KRA, resulting in a surge in tax collection.

He is credited with cultivating a tax-compliant mindset among Kenyans, making even ordinary citizens feel obliged to pay taxes in order to achieve a self-sustaining economy. At the end of his nine-year tenure, MG had pulled the country out of the borrowing spree to a point where 95 per cent of the government expenditure was financed from revenue collection.

Yet, MG’s corporate journey was not just at KRA. He rose through the ranks of the prestigious auditing and consulting firm, Ernst and Young, eventually becoming its managing partner. He also helped found the iconic Trans-Century PLC, which grew from a Chama to a listed company on the Nairobi Securities Exchange. But MG’s journey did not start in ornate corner offices; it is a journe’y defined by challenges of growing up during the heady days of the fight for independence, fraught with deprivation and near desperation. That he was able to surmount these challenges and end up at the helm of KRA makes his story intensely inspiring.

At KRA, MG had an open door policy,and gave people capacity, support and trust to deliver on their mandates.He was very fast at identifying those who embraced his reform and modernisation agenda.He quickly made them agents and catalysts for reform.

  • As a creative force, student of the human heart and soul, and champion of living the life you want, Oprah Winfrey stands alone. Over the years, she has made history with a legendary talk show – the highest-rated program of its kind, launched her own television network, become the nation’s only African-American billionaire, and been awarded both an honorary degree by Harvard University and the Presidential Medal of Freedom. From all her experiences, she has gleaned life lessons—which, for fourteen years, she’s shared in O, The Oprah Magazine’s widely popular “What I Know For Sure” column, a monthly source of inspiration and revelation.

    Now, for the first time, these thoughtful gems have been revised, updated, and collected in What I Know For Sure, a beautiful cloth bound book with a ribbon marker, packed with insight and revelation from Oprah Winfrey. Organized by theme—joy, resilience, connection, gratitude, possibility, awe, clarity, and power—these essays offer a rare, powerful and intimate glimpse into the heart and mind of one of the world’s most extraordinary women—while providing readers a guide to becoming their best selves. Candid, moving, exhilarating, uplifting, and frequently humorous, the words Oprah shares in What I Know For Sure shimmer with the sort of truth that readers will turn to again and again.

    Bestselling psychologist Dr. Meg Jay uses real stories from real lives to provide smart, compassionate, and constructive advice about the crucial (and difficult) years we cannot afford to miss.

    Our “thirty-is-the-new-twenty” culture tells us the twentysomething years don’t matter. Some say they are a second adolescence. Others call them an emerging adulthood. Dr. Meg Jay, a clinical psychologist, argues that twentysomethings have been caught in a swirl of hype and misinformation, much of which has trivialized what is actually the most defining decade of adulthood.

    Drawing from almost two decades of work with hundreds of clients and students, The Defining Decade weaves the latest science of the twentysomething years with the behind-closed-doors stories from twentysomethings, themselves. The result is a provocative read that provides the tools necessary to make the most of your twenties, and shows us how work, relationships, personality, social networks, identity, and even the brain can change more during this decade than at any other time in adulthood—if we use the time wisely.

    The Defining Decade is a smart, compassionate and constructive book about the years we cannot afford to miss.

    It was one of the most searing images of the twentieth century: two young boys, two princes, walking behind their mother’s coffin as the world watched in sorrow—and horror. As Diana, Princess of Wales, was laid to rest, billions wondered what the princes must be thinking and feeling—and how their lives would play out from that point on.
