52 percent of Kenyans want the government to address the high cost of living, citing it as a major concern.

The cost of living has risen steadily over the last three years, and prices of basic commodities such as fuel, electricity, and consumer goods are set to rise in 2023 as the government reduces subsidies.

Kenyans are also concerned about the high cost of living, with 42 percent urging the government to address the issue.

Ruto promised in his campaign manifesto to create 4 million jobs for youth.

“It is only by changing the economy that we will be able to employ more youth, and empower small businesses,” promised president Ruto during the presidential campaign.

Access to healthcare is another issue that many Kenyans are concerned about, with 30% proposing improvement.

Coincidentally Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) carried out a survey indicating the Ministry of Health is Kenya’s second most corrupt public institution.

24 percent of Kenyans want Ruto’s government to address issues affecting the country’s educational quality.

Kenyans also expressed a desire for improvements in transportation, infrastructure, and roads.

Most Kenyans did not appear concerned about the prevalence of corruption in the country, with only 15% expressing a desire for the government to combat corruption.
