A new report about inequality in Kenya is generating conversation online among the country's Twitter users. The joint report by the Society for International Development (SID) and the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics (KNBS) compares the socio-economic status of the country's counties. 

The report found that in Nairobi, only 22 per cent of Kenyans live in absolute poverty, while in Turkana - the country's poorest county - 88 per cent live in poverty.
