Kenyans confident, President can fight graft

By Eric Biegon

A large number of Kenyans have expressed confidence in President Uhuru Kenyatta’s commitment to the fight graft.

According to Ipsos Synovate findings, Kenyans believe the President is sincere in his efforts to effectively tackle corruption.

That a large number of Kenyans are concerned about rising levels of corruption in the country is not a secret.

Corruption has taken a worrying trend in the country as it threatens to tear the national fabric and reverse gains made in good governance.

A large number of the Kenyans now hold the view that it is difficult for president Uhuru Kenyatta to slay this dragon for good owing to limited powers to do so most of which have been seconded to such entities as the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission.

According to the lead researcher Tom Wolf, awareness on corruption by Kenyans has however gone up hence the rising concerns being raised by the public.

IPSOS has however disclosed that most of those interviewed feel that the cost of living is too high and insurmountable by most Kenyans and according to Tom Wolf, these are factors that could come into play come next year’s general elections.
