safaricom annual report and financial statements 2018
Last year was a difficult period for businesses all over the country. According to official reports, Kenya’s economic growth slowed to 4.9 percent, fuelled by political uncertainty as the country dealt with the effects of a prolonged electioneering period.
Mwaka uliopita ulikuwa na changamoto tele kwa biashara nyingi kote nchini Kenya. Kwa mujibu wa ripoti za serikali, kiwango cha ukuaji wa uchumi wa Kenya kilishuka hadi asilimia 4.9. Hii ilitokana na wasiwasi wa kisiasa uliokuwepo taifa hili lilipokuwa linakumbana na athari za kipindi kirefu cha uchaguzi.
