NAIROBI, Kenya April 23-The Nairobi Securities Exchange(NSE) has sent its heartfelt condolences to the friends and family of Mwai Kibaki, who served as Kenya’s third president from December 2002 to April 2013.
The NSE Board Chair Kiprono Kittony noted that Kibaki’s contributions as Minister of Finance, Vice President and thereafter President, saw the steady growth of Kenya’s economy, fueled by a commodities boom, industrial growth, improved infrastructure as well as fiscal and monetary policies that were the backbone of his economic philosophy.

Others include the automation of Government bonds trading, the launch of the FTSE NSE Kenya 15 and FTSE NSE Kenya 25 Indices, the launch of the FTSE NSE Kenyan Shilling Government Bond Index and the establishment of the Growth Enterprise Market Segment (GEMS), which gave small and medium enterprises a great opportunity to access the capital markets.
Additionally, the capital markets experienced major growth on the listing side such as, East Africa’s biggest initial public offer by Safaricom and also KenGen and Kenya Re among other blue-chip corporates, underscoring his privatization policy.
