The principal Secretary State Department for Trade, Dr Chris Kiptoo is now decrying the uncertainty in Kenyan politics which has slowed down the economic development in Kenya.

Speaking to Africa Classifieds, Dr Kiptoo expressed that the tireless efforts by the government to create a good trading environment with the rest of the world are rendered futile with the current political status.

“Extended political cycle in Kenya is creating uncertainty which is scaring our investors. This is affecting trade and investment in Kenya, despite our efforts to attract financiers,” Kiptoo said.

The Principal Secretary in the Kenyan Ministry of Industry, Trade and Cooperatives added that in the past three years, the Kenyan government has struggled to reach over one hundred countries in Africa and the rest of the world looking for the markets to sell its products. He cited the duty-free market access between Kenya and Europe which resulted after the two countries signed the economic partnership agreement.

Dr. Kiptoo also said that with the introduction of the devolved system of governance, Kenya had great hopes to hike production in counties and saw the need to look for markets but now the indicators of the current political status in Kenya are reading negative impact in businesses and other developments which are eyed to promote the economic state of Kenya.

He is calling for peace before, during and after the presidential repeat polls which the PS says it will consume over Kenya Shillings 17 billion taxpayer’s money.

“The revenue has gone down over slowdown in economic activities. Every County in Kenya is now demanding more revenue allocation for their developments,” he added.

Kenya is among leading African countries in terms of development. It is rated number three in sub-Saharan Africa and is holding the eighth position in the African continent. It is the only country in East Africa categorized as the developing nation.
