The Kenya Institute for Public Policy Research and Analysis (Kippra) has warned the economy is in the red.

Kippra said Kenya is reeling under the pressure of a Sh 5.3 trillion public debt, gradually reducing its ability to borrow more for development purposes.

“We are overburdened with debts because our leaders are borrowing recklessly,” Patrick Ochieng a member of the initiative said.

Kenyans want the country to revolt like Sudan.

Sudanese revolted over the high cost of bread and overthrown a long-time ruler Omar al-Bashir.

The cost of living in Kenya has remained an all-time high.

Promises by President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto to lower it have remained a mirage.
