Uhuru: Becoming President was My Childhood Dream

Growing up I wanted to be like my father and one day become president of Kenya, Uhuru Kenyatta says. Speaking at the official launch of MasterCard Foundation’s Young Africa Works program in Nairobi, Uhuru explained that his childhood dream was to be like his father, Kenya’s first President Jomo Kenyatta. “Like every young person, I dreamt of being a success and everyone is a creature of environment that they grow up in, I would be lying if I did not say that I did not want to be like my father.”
