The Big Four Agenda is rather an economic development strategy or framework, which the president have used to organize government delivery.
In looking at president Uhuru’s legacy on economic development, we need to really focus on his big 4 agenda and critically analyse the benefits accrued to the great of the republic Kenya from the 100s of projects that the president is implementing across the country under each of the four pillars; Housing, Healthcare, food security housing.
As the president noted during the 2020 State of the Nation address, Economic development is not about intentions and activities; it is about results.
We cannot measure economic development by the number of projects that the president has launched, No, it’s about documenting the real impacts of the projects that he has implemented since he took over some 7 years ago.
In its most rudimentary definition, economic development is measured in terms of the tangible positive transformation of the wellbeing and quality of life of the People.
During this year’s reporting, President Uhuru Kenyatta focused on four areas of primary thrust, and situated the four areas within the broad framework of the Big Four Agenda.
Unlike what many people imagine, president Uhuru clarified that the Big Four Agenda is not a project with a starting and ending date.
The Big Four Agenda is rather an economic development strategy or framework, which the president have used to organize government delivery and to answer the question ‘WHY’ in terms of the selection of the priority areas that the President is working on.
Clearly, from the charts attached on various achievements and the impacts they have had on the people, the Big Four Agenda is right on course despite the pendency of COVID-19.
