Deficit in East Africa is growing everywhere, with the exception of Rwanda.

In Rwanda, the deficit decreased from 1.2 to 0.9 per cent, in Tanzania is estimate at 5 per cent (and is expected to grow to 5.3 or 5.4 per cent), in Uganda it grew from 4.3 to 5.6 per cent while in Kenya it grew from 5.2 to 7 per cent.

“The failure by East African countries to produce high-value goods and services for export is said to be the cause of high current account deficits.”
