Welcome to Ustawi, where you will find all you need to know about the great Republic of Kenya. Here, you will discover when you realise how far we have come as a Nation, and how the future we want for ourselves and our children looks like.
As a people, we must acknowledge that the road ahead is not without serious challenges. For a start, we are a diverse Country made up of over 42 different language groups whose cultures and beliefs must be embraced and aggregated in equitable measure in our New Constitution. Otherwise, the document becomes nothing more than a poor cut-and-paste copy of Western-style democracy and other civilizations.
All in all, the Constitution of Kenya, 2010 - discussed here in applicable and relevant detail - and our Vision 2030, remain the key drivers to that future: of Greatness, Peace and Prosperity. In fact, the word Ustawi is Swahili for Prosperity, as captured in our National Anthem.
So without a doubt, Ustawi is the place to be; there is something for everyone - the curious, the student, and even the one who "don't care about politics"!
Once again: Karibu, Welcome!
