Kenyans Looking at How to Handle Growing Wealth
Are we prepared for the social consequences of wealth? In the past 10 years, talk of accelerating Kenya into a middle-income economy has been accompanied by sustained efforts to improve levels of production and employment.
These efforts have been underpinned by massive investment in both the infrastructure of ideas (education) and the physical infrastructure of roads, water, and electricity.
As a result, our economy has been rebased. We are ranked among the top 10 economies in Africa and we are now talking of achieving a 6.1 per cent growth rate per annum.
