Outrage After Survey Ranks Uhuru as Most Admired Person in Kenya

Uhuru most admired

A new survey is under scrutiny after it placed Uhuru as the most admired person in Kenya.

The results in the survey released by Tifa Research, are in contrast to how most Kenyans feel about Uhuru’s presidency.

According to the survey, 20 percent of Kenyans chose Uhuru as their most admired leader, with his deputy William Ruto and Opposition leader Raila Odinga tying at position two with 10 percent each.

Uhuru’s presidency has been marred with corruption scandals and economic mismanagement and to, therefore, place him as the most admired president is a sort of disrespect to Kenyans.

The survey, however, points out that while this is not necessarily an approval of the president’s performance as head of state and government, it shows the extent to which he is likeable as a person.

In the most admired persons’ category, parents (father and mother) came in position four, as the most respected persons having clenched 7 percentage points in the poll.

Further in the poll, musician King Kaka, emerged the fifth most admired/respected person in 2019, with 4 percentage points, probably due to his recent hit song, ‘Wajinga Nyinyi’ which was a scolding for Kenyans hypocrisy and foolishness.

The musician and poet was rated higher than the Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i, the only minister to make the list  of the most admired persons garnering 3 percentage points in the poll.

Politicians such as ex-president Mwai Kibaki, Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya, Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetang’ula, Machackos Governor Alfred Mutua and Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko polled a marginal one percent in the Tifa Research poll.
