Hope for economy despite insecurity threats

Date and time: 
Thu, 2017-11-16 11:53

Kenya continues to be rated among the best-performing sub-Saharan economies despite hitches such as the government’s  poor performance  in keeping prices stable, creating jobs, and managing the economy.

According to a  recent Afrobarometer Dispatch, Economic paradox in Kenya: More favourable perceptions amidst economic insecurity,” the  impressive performance is attributed to lower oil prices, improved tea and horticulture exports, infrastructural growth, and increased remittance inflows.
