Abstract
The article substantiates the thesis that Kenya is currently in the Malthusian trap and should make serious efforts to survive. Particular attention is paid to demographic characteristics and the specific processes of urbanization, in particular, risk factors such as «youth bump» and the rapid growth of urban population, predicted by the UN. The author considers various scenarios for Kenya in the coming decades, and gives some recommendations on how to minimize probability of emerging of socio-political instability.
