By a male, under 16 years old, in Kakamega, Kenya
Map of Economy of Kenya raised to new standards. The economy of the world has gone to high standards. Kenya has also suffered the increase in economy. Since the prices of Kenyan fuel had increased, it caused life to be hard. People had to walk to work, the prices of petrol were high thus people could not afford. Petrol was not only affected but also kerosene. It is well known that most civilians in Kenya use Kerosene to light lamps, to use it to cook.
