Kenya Bond Market Update: 16 August 2022

The Turn of the 5th

Dr. William Samoei Arap Ruto is the president-elect of Kenya after being declared the winner of the recently concluded national elections. He is the current deputy president of Kenya and this result brings to a close this electoral process that has definitely slowed things down. The real win, in my humble opinion, is that the process has been largely peaceful albeit a few regrettable flashpoints. Hoping we can all move on now and life returns to normal.
