The legacy of notable leadership in Africa, be it in politics, government, academia, business or the corporate sector cannot be said to be adequately chronicled and published. Yet, the moment the story of a man or woman of great achievement, and whose contribution has changed the destiny of others is published — particularly when the one in focus has been presented as a person of flesh and blood — the inspiration that could result can eventually transform people, generations or even entire nations. In acknowledgement of the foregoing, Kenya Leadership Institute (KLI) has initiated a Biography Programme with a mission to publish memoirs of outstanding men and women whose contributions to the makings of modern day Kenya beg systematic documentation. KLI hopes that publications that will result from this initiative will inspire Kenyans to aim higher in their various pursuits and rethink their individual roles in nation building. The programme also aims at prompting useful discourse on issues of national interest.
