I’m always an optimist but realistic and prudent in approach. Based on the history of the world one discovers that advancement in technology and science plus human society developments culturally, economically and politically have had a lot changes over time.

It is more rapid nowadays as science and technology is changing many of our interactions and engagements as well as wellbeing or lack of it very fast.

Informed by history and knowledge about human potential, I remain optimistic about Kenya in 2018. As we start off the year, it is with knowledge it is also a roll-over of the success attained so far and challenges that we carry over from last year.

So it is optimism with caution and prudence. To begin with the short rains that fall around October to December were insufficient in most parts of the country last year hence we have a food problem at hand already.
