  42. Arrogant or not arrogant you will see him shine beyond the boundaries of Kenya. Congratulations. Kenyans should see how they drop good people for unexplainable creatures because of personal interests and money.

  43. Dr Kityu was rated as the best working minister in the NARC government. He did an immense job in representing African states in the AGOA issues. His performance at National level overshadowed his role as MP for Kimilili a situation that saw gain the title of MP for Kenya but this cost him for the seat.UNCTAD Job is well deserved. This is where your work belongs, you are beyond local politics. I wash the the best.. Busolo Namunaba Pwani University.

  44. Kenya has never a minister like Dr. Kituyi. Dr. Kituyi is one among few who works to achieve where otherS have merely been sycophants. Congrats Dr kitiyu!
