A survey conducted by Info Track last month revealed that the majority of Kenyans believe the country was headed in the wrong direction.
The survey which was conducted between February 21 to February showed that 62 percent of Kenyans claimed that the country was not headed in the right decision.
The respondents cited the high cost of living, poor governance, unemployment, high taxes, and bad politics as drivers leading the country in the wrong direction.
However, speaking during an interview on Citizen TV, Elgeyo Marakwet Senator William Kisang dismissed the Info Track opinion poll that showed the country not heading in the right direction.
Kisang said the Kenya Kwanza regime has only been in charge for barely six months and that it was too early to start rating its effectiveness.
“The country is not headed in the wrong direction. The Kenya Kwanza government has only been in charge for less than six months,” Kisang said on Thursday, March 2.
Kisang who succeeded Transport CS Kipchumba Murkomen further stated that the country’s current situation was bound to happen even if opposition leader Raila Odinga won the 2022 presidential election.
“The current situation was bound to happen even if Azimio la Umoja won,” he added.
The lawmaker indeed confirmed that the cost of living has gone up and faulted the previous administration for the woes. Kisang who is a member of the Senate energy committee however promised that the government was working day and night to lower the cost of living.
“The reason why the cost of living is going up is because of power. In Ethiopia, the cost of living is ten times less than in Kenya; as members of an energy committee in the Senate, we will do an inquiry on ways to reduce some of the charges,” he said.
