Africa is not a third world country, in fact, it is not a country at all. It is a continent that has many countries in it, not all of which are third world.

There are no official definitions for first, second, or third world countries. The terms originated during the Cold War, but today, "third world" is often used to describe undedeveloped or developing nations in Asia, Africa, and Latin America, of which Kenya is one, so it most closely fits the connotation of a "third world country."

No! Africa is not a country, it's a CONTINENT.
