Afrobarometer report reveals disturbing news about RUTO and Kenya as it emerges even MUSEVENI and SULUHU have surpassed him – Look!

Tuesday, January 30, 2024 - President William Ruto is the laughing stock among his peers in the region.

This is after it emerged that he is trailing his regional counterparts Samia Suluhu of Tanzania and Yoweri Museveni of Uganda in fighting crime.

According to Afrobarometer report which was released on Monday, Ruto’s Government was ranked at position 10 in terms of government performance judged by policies put in place to reduce crime. The state got a 46 per cent approval rating, below average.

In comparison, Tanzania emerged second with a 74 per cent approval rating while Uganda was in position eight with 57 per cent.

Benin led the ranking with a 77 per cent rating followed by Tanzania, Sierra Leone (63 per cent), Togo (62 per cent), Zambia (60 per cent), Mali (60 per cent), Niger (59 per cent, Uganda and Mauritania (57 per cent).

The respondents in 39 countries were asked, "How well or badly would you say the current government is handling the following matters, or haven’t you heard enough to say: Reducing crime?"

The ranking also painted a grim picture of Kenyan police officers’ performance on the continental scale.

In terms of collecting bribes, 52 percent of Kenyan respondents admitted to paying the police for assistance placing Kenya at position nine on the ranking.

18 per cent of Kenyans, on the other hand, revealed that Kenyan police do not conduct themselves professionally while 38 per cent of Kenyans insisted that police officers engage in criminal activities.

Continent-wide, the findings of the report concluded that a third of Africans believe that their police usually operate professionally and respect citizens’ rights.
