UHURU RAT­ING DROPPED IN 2015 OVER COR­RUP­TION

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics Presidency -

Last Novem­ber, an In­fo­trak poll said cor­rup­tion in gov­ern­ment is cost­ing Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta sup­port, es­pe­cially from his Cen­tral and Rift Val­ley strongholds. The poll showed that the high­est num­ber of Kenyans con­cerned about cor­rup­tion hail from Cen­tral and Rift Val­ley, the two re­gions that over­whelm­ingly voted for Uhuru and William Ruto in 2013. The poll showed Uhuru’s ap­proval rat­ing dropped from 59.8 per cent in Novem­ber 2014, to 33.7 per cent in Novem­ber 2015. Ac­cord­ing to In­fo­trak CEO An­gela Am­bitho, the drop in Uhuru’s ap­proval rat­ing could be at­trib­uted to grow­ing ap­a­thy among Ju­bilee sup­port­ers. In­fo­trak said 52 per cent of Cen­tral Kenya listed cor­rup­tion as their great­est con­cern and 49 per cent of Rift Val­ley said the same. On what should be done on cor­rup­tion, 60 per­cent want those ac­cused pros­e­cuted.
