President Uhuru Kenyatta Tuesday said his administration will pay special attention to four key sectors he believes will drive Kenya’s economic agenda during his second term in office.

The youth, he said, will be at the centre of the four pillars plan, dubbed the ‘Big Four’, that includes food security, affordable housing, manufacturing and affordable healthcare.

Mr Kenyatta said growth in the key sectors will ride on the foundation laid in his first term in sectors such as transport, electricity distribution, education and ICT.

“I believe in you. You are my partners. And this is why my Big Four plan is centred on you. You will drive the big shift from politics to prosperity,” he told Kenya’s youthful population at Nairobi’s Kasarani Sports Complex during celebrations to mark the 54th Jamhuri Day.
