As for spirits, the victory is homemade: the elephant's brand, Tusker beer, is unrivalled and even spirits such as Jameson and Johnnie Walker whiskies or Smirnoff vodka are not close to the popularity of Lager, Malt, Pilsner and Lite.
In technology, still no one can undermine the primacy of the Korean Samsung, both in terms of sales and liking, even if the Chinese company of phones and accessories at low prices Tecno has climbed the liking and not only of Kenyans.
As for sportswear, the battle between the giants Nike and Adidas was resolved in favor of the first signature, which is confirmed as the most worn and worn.
As far as work shoes, walking shoes and free time are concerned, the Bata empire is not afraid of comparisons, even in the car sector Toyota leaves at a certain distance the other Japanese brands such as Suzuki and Mitsubishi, the British Land Rover and the other European car manufacturers.
