Uhuru Kenyatta: Promises Broken Paperback by Joe Khamisi

KShs2,190.00

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.

    The first Graywolf Press African Fiction Prize winner, a story of a girl’s fantastical sea voyage to rescue her father

    The House of Rust is an enchanting novel about a Hadrami girl in Mombasa. When her fisherman father goes missing, Aisha takes to the sea on a magical boat made of a skeleton to rescue him. She is guided by a talking scholar’s cat (and soon crows, goats, and other animals all have their say, too). On this journey Aisha meets three terrifying sea monsters. After she survives a final confrontation with Baba wa Papa, the father of all sharks, she rescues her own father, and hopes that life will return to normal. But at home, things only grow stranger.

    Khadija Abdalla Bajaber’s debut is a magical realist coming-of-age tale told through the lens of the Swahili and diasporic Hadrami culture in Mombasa, Kenya. Richly descriptive and written with an imaginative hand and sharp eye for unusual detail, The House of Rust is a memorable novel by a thrilling new voice.

  • The play opens with two tribunes discovering the commoners of Rome celebrating Julius Caesar‘s triumphant return from defeating the sons of his military rival, Pompey. The tribunes, insulting the crowd for their change in loyalty from Pompey to Caesar, attempt to end the festivities and break up the commoners, who return the insults. During the feast of Lupercal, Caesar holds a victory parade and a soothsayer warns him to “Beware the ides of March,” which he ignores. Meanwhile, Cassius attempts to convince Brutus to join his conspiracy to kill Caesar. Although Brutus, friendly towards Caesar, is hesitant to kill him, he agrees that Caesar may be abusing his power. They then hear from Casca that Mark Antony has offered Caesar the crown of Rome three times. Casca tells them that each time Caesar refused it with increasing reluctance, hoping that the crowd watching would insist that he accept the crown. He describes how the crowd applauded Caesar for denying the crown, and how this upset Caesar. On the eve of the ides of March, the conspirators meet and reveal that they have forged letters of support from the Roman people to tempt Brutus into joining. Brutus reads the letters and, after much moral debate, decides to join the conspiracy, thinking that Caesar should be killed to prevent him from doing anything against the people of Rome if he were ever to be crowned.

  • The best leaders not only lead well but also reflect on their leadership long enough and thoughtfully enough to articulate the philosophies that cause them to do so. Whether serving in the marketplace or in ministry, as executives or rank-and-file employees, as salaried staff or volunteer servants, good leaders can pinpoint the rationale for their actions and decisions with the ease of reciting their home address. In Axiom, author Bill Hybels divulges the God-given convictions that have dictated his leadership strategy for more than three decades as senior pastor of Willow Creek Community Church. Oriented toward four key leadership categories … 1. Vision and strategy (“Promote Shameless Profitability,” “Take a Flyer”) 2. Teamwork and communication (“Obi-Wan Kenobi Isn’t for Hire,” “Disagree without Drawing Blood”) 3. Activity and assessment (“Develop a Mole System,” “Sweat the Small Stuff”) 4. Personal integrity (“Admit Mistakes, and Your Stock Goes Up,” “Fight for Your Family”) … Axiom brokers accessible wisdom from one leader’s journey, as well as emboldens you to nail down the reasons why you lead like you lead.
