Kenyans see jobs, corruption as top election issues
Nairobi, 03 Aug – (ANA) - Creating jobs and tackling corruption are the two most important challenges that Kenyans want their government to address in the run-up to elections next March, according to a Gallup public opinion poll released yesterday.
The next presidential election in the country will be closely scrutinised because it will be the first since the 2007 vote that triggered fighting in which more than 1,200 people were killed. The Gallup survey conducted in April showed 36 percent of Kenyans aged 18 and older believed unemployment was the country's most pressing issue while 28 percent named reducing corruption. Smaller percentages cited other issues such as improving education (14 percent), agriculture (12 percent), health care (7 percent) and electricity supplies (3 percent). (ANA)
