Kenya Kwanza supporters Now losing faith in Ruto government, Tifa poll reveals


A new survey by Trends for Insights Africa (TIFA) has exposed the growing dissatisfaction among Kenya Kwanza supporters with the performance of the Ruto-led government.


The survey, conducted between June 24 and 30, 2023, using computer-assisted telephonic interviews of 1,530 respondents, found that only 38% of Kenya Kwanza supporters think the country is heading in the right direction, down from 51% in March.


The main reasons for the negative outlook are the high cost of living, unemployment, corruption, and insecurity, according to the survey.


The survey also assessed the achievements and failures of the Kenya Kwanza government since it took over power in August 2022. The most cited achievements are the implementation of the Big Four agenda, the fight against COVID-19, the improvement of infrastructure, and the promotion of regional integration.


However, the survey also revealed that many Kenya Kwanza supporters are unhappy with the government’s handling of various issues, such as the economy, education, health, agriculture, and the environment.


Only 24% of Kenya Kwanza supporters said the government has no failures, while 47% identified economic hardship as the main failure.


The survey also rated the overall performance of the government in fulfilling its campaign promises. The average score was 5.6 out of 10, with 28% giving a score of 7 or higher, and 26% giving a score of 4 or lower.


The best performing senior government official, according to the survey, is President William Ruto, who received a score of 6.4 out of 10, followed by Deputy President Gideon Moi, who received a score of 5.9.


The survey also showed that former President Uhuru Kenyatta, who retired in August 2022, has little influence on the current political scene. Only 20% of Kenya Kwanza supporters want him to be involved in politics, while 70% prefer him to stay away.


The survey has a margin of error of +/- 2.5% and a confidence level of 95%.
