Here’s to hope – Kenya Vision 2030

The Daily Nation (Friday, 13 June 2008 ) has posted the Kenya Vision 2030 – popular version (download PDF here) 3MB

This publication is a summary of Kenya’s new long-term national planning strategy, officially known as Kenya Vision 2030. The publication briefly states the main goals of the Economic, Social and Political pillars that underpin Vision 2030. It also summarises the major (or flagship) projects to be embarked upon in the medium-term period of the Vision i.e. from 2008-2012.

Kenya Vision 2030 is the country’s new development blueprint covering the period 2008 to 2030. It aims to transform Kenya into a newly industrialising, “middle-income country providing a high quality life to all its citizens by the year 2030”.

It would be nice.

BTW: If you happen to hear any prophesies that seem especially detailed about Kenya’s future economic promise, cross check with this document.

  1. it is a tremendous dream we have for the future of this country turning it to a fast class country,but is it possible to archive this dreams with the kind of governance we have at the moment where the leaders are all self centered not really having in mind of fellow citizens welfare. this kind of leaders should be terminated and the only way to archive this is choosing leaders through institutions and the archievements they have set and archieved and what they have on the table to enhance growth and development without greed and selfishness.kenyan should shun choosing leaders on partys(e.g odm, pnu)etc wich all are tribal based. kenyan also should change their way of treating each other as people of different ethnic grounds and unite as one “kenyans” to see the vision come into place.

    Thanks for your comment, John. I share your hopes for a Kenya that appreciates and enjoys it’s ethnic diversity but works together as a united nation. Unfortunately, politicians everywhere . . . (well, I’ll leave it at that.)

    It is however a tribute to this coalition government that they have published a document presenting a long-term vision. Our prayer is that they will have the discipline and character to carry it out for the benefit of all Kenyans.

    i thnk its so nic that a country like Kenya gets the mental construct of a longterm vision which we all hope and pray that its not a dream but a vision.
    the bnggest problem in this case is our politicians who nolonger are but have turned to be politrickscian.
    am not mad i mean it .
    this is the problem.
    always tricks

    kenya’s corrupt individuals should know that this dream will not b achieved unless they change..

  5. This dream can be realised if we all make it our responsibility to make it happen. It’s not just for the politicians – though they of course play an important role. Ask yourself what you can do to contribute to your country’s development; indeed I always ask myself that.

    It is up to us to filter out those politicians who are not action and development oriented in the next elections. It’s pointless to moan about them, when we’re the ones who voted them in. Let’s vote with our heads next time, not our stomachs or for short-term gain.

    vision 2030 is a dream that will never be realised. it is full of good ideas and classic pictures/graphics and that is what we are always good at but not implementing them.when i look at the document i dont see my village being represented on we are going to tackle poverty, unemployement insecurity etc name them or you,do you see your village represented?

  7. As citizens of kenya we all have the responsibility of implementing vision 2030 so we have to visualize the vision, actualize it by being participatory in whatever we undertake to do. This bicycle cannot move far without a peddle from you. Let’s all pool up and and make kenya part of the global for our. Benefit and those of our future generation.. Remember Rome was not build in a day.
