July 7, 1990 marked a significant turning point in Kenya’s struggle for democracy, when citizens rallied against the authoritarian rule of President Daniel Arap Moi. The movement demanded political freedoms, multiparty democracy, and an end to the repressive regime.

Despite facing violence and adversity, the spirit of Saba Saba resonated across the nation and ultimately led to the reintroduction of multiparty politics in Kenya.

The legacy of the Saba Saba movement continues to resonate in Kenya today. It serves as a reminder of the power of grassroots mobilization, the importance of upholding democratic principles, and the ongoing struggle for political and social justice.

The courage and determination displayed by those who participated in Saba Saba paved the way for a more inclusive and democratic Kenya.

That is a phase in Kenyan history that we overcame and former proponents of Saba Saba must recognize that a prosperous future for Kenya lies in inclusive governance and equitable economic opportunities. Instead of calling Kenyans for Maadamano the can channel the ideology behind Saba Saba by rallying their troops in parliament in creating policies and initiatives that prioritize inclusive growth, reducing socioeconomic disparities, and ensuring equal access to economic resources for all Kenyans.

To build a prosperous future, it is essential to foster an entrepreneurial culture and embrace innovation. Former proponents of Saba Saba should be championing for initiatives that support small businesses, encourage innovation and creativity, and provide access to financing, mentorship, and training programs.

By doing so, we can unlock the immense potential of our people and drive economic growth.

The Saba Saba movement emphasized the need for change and a more sustainable future. Now is the time to embrace environmental stewardship, promoting sustainable practices in agriculture, energy, and infrastructure development. By adopting green technologies and sustainable development strategies, we can safeguard our natural resources and create a resilient economy for future generations.

Former proponents of Saba Saba must recognize the significance of youth empowerment and education. They should be helping the government and to identify ways of investing in quality education, vocational training, and mentorship programs; that way we can equip the next generation with the skills and knowledge needed to drive innovation, secure employment, and contribute to the growth of our nation.

The ideology behind Saba Saba calls for equal opportunities for all. Former proponents must now champion gender equality, ensuring that women have equal access to education, economic resources, and leadership positions. By empowering women, we unlock their immense potential and contribute to a more prosperous and inclusive society.

As we navigate the path to a prosperous future, it is crucial for former proponents of Saba Saba to transition their mindset and embrace a new Kenya. The ideology behind Saba Saba should be harnessed positively to shape our nation, fostering inclusive governance, nurturing entrepreneurship, promoting sustainable development, empowering the youth, and advancing gender equality.

By uniting under a shared vision, we can build a Kenya that reflects the aspirations of all its citizens and paves the way for a brighter future. Let us harness the spirit of Saba Saba and embark on this transformative journey together.
