Kenya has experienced significant economic growth over the past few years, but the high cost of living remains a major challenge for many of its citizens.
There are several factors that contribute to the high cost of living in Kenya, including:
Kenya has experienced high inflation rates in recent years, which has led to an increase in the cost of goods and services.
The government has been accused of imposing high taxes on various goods and services, including fuel, which has a ripple effect on the cost of living.
Corruption is a major problem in Kenya, and it affects the cost of living in several ways. For example, corrupt officials may inflate the cost of contracts, which increases the cost of infrastructure projects. There are also concerns over the latest appointment of CAS office officials.
According to Eric Omondi and many politicians, to address the high cost of living, the government needs to take several measures, including addressing corruption, reducing taxes on essential goods and services.
Additionally, efforts to increase access to credit and support small businesses could help create more opportunities for citizens to generate income and improve their standard of living even as Hustler Fund aims to facilitate this need gap.
Globally countries and governments are facing challenges with high living standards.
