List Of Parastatals In Kenya

by Victor Matara

This is a list of all parastatals in Kenya. Parastatals or rather state corporations are organizations and companies owned by the government (the Government controls the majority or all of the Shares). They are established under Section 3 of the State Corporations Act, Cap 446, or by an act of Parliament, or under the Companies Act.

Parastatals are involved in almost every sector of the Kenyan economy. Originally, parastatals were established mainly in the agricultural sector. Now they can also be found in all other economic sectors.
