    Kenya’s prolonged election period is slowing down the economy, which has lost about $1bn after the first presidential election was annulled.

    The losses are expected to continue as investors shy away following a political impasse in the country.

    The nullification of the August presidential election, followed by an October rerun triggered a political crisis that continues to weigh heavily on what is East Africa's dominant economy.
