Have you ever bothered to compare maps for different countries?
Some look like pumpkins, others look like donkey-heads ( forgive my bias). Take Chile; for example, it looks like a long chain of some sot; New Zealand looks like a drop in the ocean (which it really is) while Somalia looks a like a 7.

Do you know that Kenya is probably the most symmetrical country in the world map?
If you disagree with me on this, then I advise that you go for an eye checkup.
In my view, this symmetry has got something to do with the natural balances that I have seen in our country.
what I really mean is that; in this beautiful country ours, everything good appears to have another negative thing to counterbalance it. Like, for every good politician, there is a bad one; for every well-performing school, there is a poor-performing one, for every good husband, there is a bad one and on and on...

In Mathematics, (+) 1 added to (-) 1 equals a circle.
In East Africa, Kenya shines bright; no doubt. Unfortunately, our  bright light is quickly covered be dark clouds that make it dull or completely invisible.
Let's take a look at some of the areas where we lead in the zero-sum game (particularly in this region)
Best roads +( Most drunken drivers, Fake driving licenses,Corrupt traffic police officers)= Accidents
Best constitution+ greedy parliament and Hungry County assemblies = Poverty
Best Schools and universities + (bad syllabus , underpaid teachers and poorly funded research =8-4-4=0
