Most African countries and many other 3rd world countries depend on the developed countries in running their affairs. This is because the revenue we collect as a country is not enough to run or sustain the countries growing population. However, the developed countries do not give their support in form of charity but rather they give their support in form of loans. Kenya among many other country's is one of those countries operating with loans. Since our independence in 1963, we have been borrowing from countries like the US, Britain, Japan, China etc. Surprisingly, instead of our debts going down, its increasing every year with the current debt being more than twice the country's annual budget.

So today we at opera news have done some research to find out the amount of debt by the end of tenure of our four presidents. Take your time to go through it and remember to share your thoughts on what we can do as a country or whether it is necessary for us to continue borrowing money.
