UHURU RATING DROPPED IN 2015 OVER CORRUPTION
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.
