What is Kenya doing better than most African countries? by Kenyans247(1): Tue Dec 2019 10:13am
In the colonial era Kenya attracted much more White settlement compared to many other African colonies. White settlement meant capital investment, as generally white settlers wanted living standards similar to their homelands. So, more infrastructure, more economic diversification, etc.

By the decolonization point Kenya was this already coming out with an advantage over its peers.

Kenya did not fall to communism as Ethiopia did, nor did it fall to misguided economic experiments as did Tanzania. It didn't have a super 20th century but it was certainly better than, say, Rwanda's or Burundi's.

Kenya's archenemy Somalia decided to invade Ethiopia rather than Kenya, and then failed and collapsed shortly after. This removed the only geopolitical threat to Kenya in the region.

Uganda acted as a geopolitical shield against Sudanese aggression and Congolese chaos in the area.

Stabilization in the DRC, Ethiopia, and Rwanda opened up those markets to Kenyan firms, who after the convulsions in the region in the 80s-90s were really the only ones left standing. Independence of South Sudan in 2011 added a new market.

To use a very sloppy analogy, Kenya has been peacefully stacking it’s chips since independence while everyone else gambled big and lost.
