In President Uhuru Kenyatta’s first term in office, his government pursued several multi-billion shilling infrastructure projects, something that is continuing in his second and final term. In the process, the country has racked up a lot of foreign debt since most, if not all, of these projects are funded through loans and concessions from foreign banks and governments.

These and more are the questions explored in the fourth installment of our new series in collaboration with The Elephant.
