Nairobi — The provision of subsidized fertilizer to farmers and assisting small businesses are among the top promises the Kenya Kwanza Government has fulfilled as it marks one year in office.
According to findings released by Trends and Insights For Africa (TIFA) Research firm, 44 percent of 1,007 respondents polled cited the provision of subsidized fertilizer as a promise that the government has satisfactorily implemented.
26 percent of those polled in the survey conducted last week cited the establishment of interventions such as the Hustler Fund as among the positive steps the government has taken to assist small businesses.
By contrast, the implementation ratings for reducing the cost of living, job creation, and reduction of education costs are largely negative.
52 percent of the respondents faulted the Kenya Kwanza Government for failing to reduce the cost of living while only 8 percent felt very much had been done by the government to reduce the cost of living.
58 percent of those polled gave the government a thumbs down for failing to create employment as 8 percent felt the government had done very much to create employment over the past year.
51 percent of Kenyans polled told the TIFA survey that the government had failed to keep its campaign pledge of reducing education costs, especially in the implementation of the Competency-Based Curriculum. 11 percent felt the government had lived up to their promise.
