25 American Companies Richer Than Kenya

May 22, 2013

Kenya’s GDP (2011) was 33.62 billion US dollars. Our neighbours Tanzania and Uganda have GDPs of 23.87 and 16.81 respectively. Our brothers in West Africa, Ghana, have a slightly higher GDP than ours at 39.2.
Our more developed brothers, South Africa, have over ten times our GDP, at $408.2 billion.

For us to understand the real meaning of a third world country, the following are 20 corporations with higher revenue than our country Kenya and by extension many African countries. 
Mind you, there are more than 100 richer than East Africa’s largest economy, as opposed to only 4 richer than South Africa. 
These are only US companies. Others like Samsung, BP and Tata, whose origin is not USA, still have larger revenue than Kenya’s GDP.
