At least 72 percent of Kenyans believe the country is heading in the wrong direction as a result of high living costs, high unemployment rates, and COVID-19.

This is according to a poll conducted across the country by Trends and Insights For Africa (TIFA) between June and July 2021.

The survey addressed a wide range of critical economic, political, and social welfare public issues.

According to the survey, 12 percent of those polled believe the country is on the right track.

They attribute this to COVID-19 management, infrastructure, education, and the cost of living.

Those who believe the country is heading in the wrong direction blame it on high living costs, unemployment, and political issues.

According to the same poll, 47 percent of those polled believe Uhuru’s greatest legacy is infrastructure, as well as improving unity through the handshake and expanding the electricity grid.

At the same time, increased public debt, general economic hardship among Kenyans, and increased corruption have emerged as issues dotting the Head of State’s legacy, accounting for 18%, 17%, and 11%, respectively.
