Most chief executive officers in Kenya expect economic conditions to improve after Tuesday’s election, according to an index measuring business sentiment.

CEOs also expressed optimism about hiring additional full-time employees in the next six months, which will translate into increased business opportunities, according to research conducted by the Kenya Private Sector Alliance, a business lobby group, and TIFA Research for the CEO Business Confidence Index. The gauge is the third to be conducted by KEPSA -- two others were done in 2012 and 2018.
