Kenya's 2012 Top 40 Under 40 Men

Nation Media Group's Business Daily presented the annual 'Top 40 Under 40' awards on December 4th 2012. The awards ceremony which seeks to recognise and celebrate young Kenyan's achievements in the field of business, enterprise and professionalism were graced by Chief Justice Willy Mutunga.

Speaking at the unveiling of the list, Dr. Mutunga urged professionals to uphold integrity in their undertakings. 
"For persons in business, the case of the Enron Corporation is too well known. What tends to be forgotten is that the main problem was not the profitability of the business as such, but the lack of integrity among the decision-makers within it. In other words, it was the failure and/or refusal by the professionals within the organisation to do what they should have been doing." - Dr. Mutunga

Business Daily come up with this campaign five years ago, running the women's edition for four years before the men's version was finally unveiled in 2011.
