Kudos to Kenya as they are ranked the happiest people in East Africa according to the recent world happiness study.

This research was carried out by World Happiness Council which has been mandated by the United Nations to carry out the yearly assessment of how citizens feel about the state of affairs in their respective countries.


According to the UN report, covering 2016 to 2018, Kenya is ranked at position 121 out of 156 countries assessed. Uganda comes second at position 136, like Rwanda and Tanzania trail at 153 and 154 respectively.

Ravaged by civil war and epidemic hunger, South Sudanese are the saddest people of all replacing Burundi which initially held position 156. Despite the oil business giving the youngest country in the continent hope; frequent political instability seems to have influenced the results making it the most awful country to live in.
