Summary

Makueni County, with an estimated population of just over 1 million, is predominantly rural, and highly reliant on subsistence agriculture. Key social indicators evidenced steady improvement over the five years to 2018, with electricity coverage increasing from 5.7% in 2013 to 20% in 2018, and water coverage increasing from under 25% to 36% over the same period. Nevertheless, indicators suggest that majority of the population remains poor with high multi-dimensional poverty estimated at about 60% (country average 53%).

Additional Information

The Stable Outlook reflects GCR’s view that Makueni’s financial position will remain sound, underpinned by low and adequate liquidity, even as OSR remains very low and expenditure pressure persists. Positive rating action could arise if the county reverts to an unqualified audit opinion on a sustainable basis, significantly improves its development budget implementation and demonstrates sustained significant growth in OSR.
