No you’re wrong. In the purest form of definition, a country’s currency is tied closely to the economic strength of that country-due to supply and demand forces.
Although GDP is more commonly used to determine the size of a country’s economy, the strength of a currency is a close correlate.
Given the fact that kenya’s economy is not vastly superior to her neighbors, it means that the Ksh is grossly overvalued. Why the CBK decides to manipulate the currency is everyone’s guess. The fact remains a strong currency hurts Kenya’s trade competitiveness by making exports expensive.
Why should they take your coffee? Wacha conspiracy theories. Thankfully these shenanigans can’t go on forever. One day Kenya will wake up only to find themselves importing from TZ or UG. Our neighbors are the biggest beneficiaries of this currency overvaluation.
