Kenya has revised the size of its economy by reinterpreting the figures and the measures used to create a new reality. It is now the ninth-largest economy on the African continent.

But despite that, Kenya does have a vision - on paper at least. And the man charged with charting a course for Kenya's economy is Gituro Wainaina, the CEO of Vision 2030 in Kenya. He speaks to Counting the Cost from Nairobi.

"The ultimate goal is to provide high quality life for every Kenyan, irrespective of who that Kenyan is in this country, irrespective the social status, we are talking of giving them high quality life - be it in education, be it in health, be it in infrastructure," he says.

Al Jazeera's Catherine Soi also investigates whether an economic revision means anything to the everyday Kenyan.
