A native of Kakamega, Kenya, Mr. Makokha relocated to the United States and earned a Bachelor of Business Administration from Albany State University. Soon thereafter, he received a Master of Science in economics from Auburn University in 1979. Consequently, he assumed employment with Genessee County in Flint, Michigan, as the director of elections while contributing as an adjunct instructor with Baker College between 1979 and 1999. During his time in Flint, Mr. Makokha served as a budget analyst for the Senate Fiscal Agency, the director of the Parks and Recreation Department, and the director of the Department of Community and Economic Development from 1987 to 2000.
In 2002, Mr. Makokha joined Vincenne University as an adjunct professor, while working as a consultant at the Hudson Institute until 2003. He has since contributed as president of the AWA Group, as well as a professor of economics with Collin College. His area of expertise includes the principles of economics, microeconomics and banking. The highlight of Mr. Makokha’s career was being a city employee of the government, which led to his assistance in rebuilding the city of Flint’s golf courses. He is also proud to have engineered the urban redevelopment, which was adopted by President Bill Clinton for his urban renewal economic plan. For his accomplishments in the field, he has been featured in the 65th edition of Who’s Who in America in 2011.
