In our previous post, we covered the 10 poorest tribes in Kenya for the year 2021. Today, we shall list the ranking of the top ten list of the poorest county or counties in Kenya in 2021. Most importantly, we shall be answering several questions we received through our inboxes. For example, Which is the poorest county in Kenya? Which is the richest county in Kenya? What is the poverty level in Kenya 2021?
First, several factors influence the GDP per county in Kenya today. This includes the frequent boundary conflicts and livestock rusting in counties like West Pokot and Baringo. However, the government of Kenya has so far contained the situation in the affected areas.
Which is the poorest county in Kenya?
The poorest county in Kenya today is Mandera county. The second poorest county in Kenya is Turkana county, followed by Samburu county. This is because the residents in these counties lack basic needs like food and housing. Furthermore, there is a shortage of schools, hospitals, clean water, security, and other basic facilities and services.
Most noteworthy, we used these parameters while developing the list of the top ten poorest counties in Kenya in 2021. In addition, we also used some findings from the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS).
In summary, we will list the name of the poorest county or counties in Kenya. Then, we will provide links to each of the top ten poorest counties in Kenya in 2021. Have a look at the up-to-date list beneath.
