tourism ni poa basi kama seychelles na mauritius zimetupita.Kama sio hoteli,those two countries are full of sugar cane and thaara

Io no. 10 iko sida, people there live in so much poverty, with a lot of negligence by the government if the documentaries I have watched are anything to go by

Gabon and Equitorial guinea no shithole countries. Wealth is concentrated in a few hands

Small problem.

When you include subjective measures, the ranking changes by viewer.

"Our ranking is not one sided, it’s based on factors like economy, amenities, internet usage and coverage, organization, productivity, human rights laws, politics, civility, safety and peacefulness. So if you are a foreigner looking to know which countries African countries are the most advanced and civilized then the below list is for you."

So how do you measure a value like politics? Civility? Peacefulness?

There’s a reason why these “measures” are omitted in more publicized rankings. There must be something in the ranked countries that the developers of this algorithm like. According to them…

‘The most developed’ is very subjective. Is it infrastructural development?

tiny nations, or rather islands. The entire cement used to tarmac Thika road can tarmac all the roads in those tiny island countries.

Crappy criteria. However, one thing that stands out is that most of these countries have relatively stable populations…go figure.

What does us in is our unsustainable population growth, otherwise the Kenyan economy is among the top 70 biggest in the world…
