Kenia, nog 'n kak Afrika land ...

The International Monetary Fund expects the Kenyan economy to grow at least 5.5 to 6 pct this year from an estimated 4.5 to 5 percent in 2012, assuming elections in March go smoothly, a senior fund official said.
"Kenya has stayed the course of its economic reforms and this has worked quite well," Domenico Fanizza, who has been leading a mission to Kenya under the IMF's Extended Credit Facility, told a news conference on Thursday.
Kenya has forecast 5 percent plus growth this year.

The euro zone slipped deeper than expected into recession in the last three months of 2012 after its largest economies, Germany and France, shrank at the end of a wretched year for the region.
It marked the currency bloc's first full year in which no quarter produced growth, extending back to 1995. For the year as a whole, gross domestic product (GDP) fell by 0.5 percent
Economic output in the 17-country region fell by 0.6 percent in the fourth quarter, EU statistics office Eurostat said on Thursday, following a 0.1 percent output drop in the third.
The big economies set the tone.
Germany contracted by 0.6 percent on the quarter, official data showed, marking its worst performance since the global financial crisis was raging in 2009.
France's 0.3 percent fall was also slightly worse than expectations.
Worryingly for Berlin, it was export performance - the motor of its economy - that did most of the damage, declining significantly more than imports.
En ek krap kop? Ek meen, hoe kan Afrika bly groei teen rekordtempo, maar die weste verval teen 'n ewe snelle pas? Het die wêreld mal geword? Verstaan Moeder Aarde dan nie wie is baas en wie is Klaas meer nie?
Kyk na SA bv. In 1994 was ons helemaal bankrot, maar vandag een van die rykste en snel ontwikkelende lande ter wêreld! Die Anc het in 17 korte jaartjies veel meer reggekry as wat die Wittes in 500 jaar kon regkry!
Hoe verklaar mens dit, wat gaan aan? God slaap ... of het ons nou 'n nuwe Afrika God daarbo?
