Kenya 'unlikely to be hit by turmoil'

People considering investments in Kenya could be keen to hear that the country is unlikely to be affected by the turmoil gripping the north of Africa.

According to the Kenya's prime minister, Raila Odinga, sub-Saharan Africa probably won't be affected by the political issues of the north.

He explained that the continent of Africa is in different stages and that reforms are already underway in the south.

Egypt and Tunisia have already seen their rulers overturned after political protests and fighting.

In Libya, meanwhile, rebels are continuing their attempts to topple their leader Muammar Gaddafi with backing from the West.

Speaking to Reuters at an education event held in the Emirates, Mr Odinga said: "The developments in Africa, you can call it a natural development as countries are waking up and basically trying to create democratic societies."

Kenyan politicians have previously noted that stability is essential for further investment and development of the country.ADNFCR-2019-ID-800479661-ADNFCR
