Dear Africa interested professionals:
                                                     Kenya has been named the best African emerging economy to invest in due to accelerated infrastructure development and a stable political and macroeconomic environment; according to the Eurasia group, Kenya has a diminished threat of political and economic turmoil unlike Nigeria. 

Nairobi was recently named as the most "tech" savvy city in Africa and its success in mobile banking through MPesa has fascinated people across the continent all the way to Silicon Valley in California. BitPesa is now in the mix...

The Nairobi Stock Exchange is among the three African exchanges that have been demutualized; the others are Zimbabwe and South Africa.  The Nairobi Stock Exchange is also one of the best performing stock markets in Africa over the past twelve months.  The Nigerian Stock Exchange is still "thinking about" how to demutualize; all the vested interests of bank owners, oil tycoons etcetera are posturing to whomever they think matters to ensure they get a huge piece of the pie whenever the time comes.  The Nigerian Stock Exchange is also one of the worst performing stock markets in Africa over the past twelve months.    

The following multinationals have chosen to locate their African Headquarters in Kenya.  SSA stands for Sub-Saharan Africa.  This list is not exhaustive and excluded companies that chose Kenya as their East African headquarters only. 

1.  General Electric
2.  Google
3.  IBM
4.  IMF
5.  Mitsubishi Motors
6.  Nokia Research Hub
7.  Qualcomm (SSA)
8.  Rockefeller Foundation
9.  Standard Chartered Bank (also listed on the Nairobi Stock Exchange)
10. Toyota
11.  Visa Inc. (SSA)
12.  World Bank
13.  Motorola Solutions (SSA)
14.  Merck
15.  GSM Association
16.  Diageo
17.  Coca Cola
18. Airtel
19. BASF (SSA)

Kenya's President recently went to the Hague as a private citizen to answer to the genocide charges against him due to the electoral crisis in Kenya in December 2007/January 2008.  He has now been cleared of all charges against him. 

West Africa meanwhile is dealing with Ebola in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia, mismanagement of oil proceeds in Nigeria and Ghana, Boko Haram in Nigeria and surrounding borders.  Plunging currencies in Ghana and Nigeria coupled with rising debt levels in both countries. 

Kenya's inflation rate for February is 5.61% while Nigeria's February inflation rate is still being expected.  The January figure of 8.2% is approximately 260 basis points higher than that of Kenya. 

Kenya's 52-week exchange rate has hovered within a 7% range differential while Nigeria's 52-week exchange rate has hovered within a 31% range differential over the same time period. 

The literacy rate in Kenya is 87% while that of Nigeria is 61%. 

Kenyan banks have started lending to IDEAS for a few years now while Nigerian banks continue to focus on lending to ASSETS.  Last time I checked, Nigeria has a bad bank (AMCON) and Kenya does not.

Kenya has handled the Al-Shabab menace much better than Nigeria has handled the Boko Haram menace.  Kenya even invaded Somalia in its quest to destroy the terrorist group bombing its territory while killing and maiming its citizens.  Nigeria has suddenly woken up to its responsibilities to its citizens as it relates to Boko Haram when votes are about to be counted.  Is this politics or coincidence? 

What are the Kenyan people doing better than the Nigerian people?  What are the Kenyan people doing that the Nigerians have not yet adopted?  

Being large can pique your curiosity (which is why Nigeria is number one when it comes to countries under close watch for future investments by multinationals) but not keep your attention.  The people of a country have to do the right things to keep your attention after piquing your curiosity from afar.  Kenyans are clearly doing a better job of that than Nigerians; meanwhile, Nigeria has a much more vaunted status and potential than Kenya in Africa. 

Kenya is utilizing its talents in a better fashion and reaping the fruits with all the companies stated above establishing their African headquarters in Kenya; while on average, making more money in Nigeria (where applicable) than in Kenya.  Kenya continues to reap more with less gifts and its people are receiving the blessings.    

I leave you with the verbatim quote from a paper I wrote about 8 years ago.  It is still relevant today.

When a government, rather than acting as a neutral force protecting property rights and enforcing contracts, attempts to favor some at the expense of others, counterproductive activities will expand while positive-sum productive activities will shrink. People will spend more time organizing and lobbying politicians and less time producing goods and services.

Since fewer resources will be utilized to create wealth (and more utilized in rent-seeking activities (selfish interest), economic progress will be retarded. This is exactly what is happening today in Nigeria with no end in sight. This is why politicians see elections as a do-or-die affair and a direct opportunity to enrich their pockets.

Attention digs deep while curiosity just skims the surface.  Kenya, keep on keeping on.  Your lights are shining brightly.

(Mon06) Connected gadgets, appliances, vehicles and physical retail spaces are gathering massive amounts of consumer data. Companies from Diageo to Lord & Taylor are investing in technologies and resources to help them determine how their products and businesses can be enhanced through this Internet of Things.

But many of those companies -- aware of concerns over data privacy -- have been reluctant to explain to consumers why they're using mobile beacons and other sensors to harvest data. New research, however, suggests this is a lost opportunity for brands to present themselves as privacy conscious.

"It's almost impossible to get brands to talk about this, but in actuality there's an opportunity here," said Jessica Groopman, industry analyst at Altimeter Group, which published its "Consumer Perceptions of Privacy in the Internet of Things" report this morning.

A study from Alimeter Group suggests that in their reluctance to explain data collection and use, brands are missing an opportunity.

Gleneagles Hotel and Golf Resort has been sold for approximately £150 million.

The resort has been sold by Diageo, who have owned it for 31 years, to Ennismore, a private investment company, who already own the small Hoxton chain of boutique hotels. 

Gleneagles, host of the Ryder Cup last year and the G8 Summit in 2005 is the latest in a long line of major golf clubs to have been sold in the last 18 months.

It follows the likes of Wentworth, Turnberry and Fairmont St Andrews which were all sold in 2015. #Gleneagles   #Golf   #Scotland   #RyderCup

I'm pleased to say that after many months of negotiation and heartache we have finally secured the Diageo portfolio with Sodexo. Much work was completed by +Iain Marks and his LOM's,TL's, FB's & Surveyors with all sites initially being surveyed - the Gap between the incumbent provider, MITIE, and ourselves was evident when they provided their own quote to Sodexo for the works and said how many bait stations they had at each site - we very quickly proved this to be nonsense with many sites having little or no service provision.

We presented to Sodexo and Diageo a few months ago and they were blown away by our professional approach and the fact we actually had front line colleagues close to many of these remote distillery locations in the Scottish isles and highlands - therefore response times and combating infestation will be greatly enhanced....Again something our competition can only dream of.

Thanks to everyone who surveyed, presented, processed and is now in the processes of mobilising (the real hard work) - with a go live date of 3rd Aug we are already getting call outs and job works because Mite have simply walked away and burnt all bridges  - they know when they are beat!

Gleneagles Hotel and golf resort sold by Diageo
"Gleneagles Hotel and golf resort has been sold by drinks company Diageo, which has owned it for 31 years. The selling price is believed to have been about £150m. It has been bought by Ennismore, a private investment company, which already owns the small Hoxton chain of boutique hotels. The new owner said it would retain the existing staff and make a "significant" investment in "one of the world's most prestigious and recognisable venues". Gleneagles' most recent published accounts showed turnover of £43m, and operating profit of £2.5m It hosted the Ryder Cup last September and a G8 summit 10 years ago. Ennismore is thought to have paid about £150m the Perthshire hotel, which has three golf courses."
