2014 budget was a failure, Kenyans say

11 June 2015, 12:33 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The 2014 budget was a failure, Kenyans interviewed in a poll have said.

53% of Kenyans believe that the budget did not help them in any way, a damning assessment of the use of public funds by the government.

30% felt that the budget was fair and that it affected their lives in a positive way.

17% of the respondents were not sure what stand to take.

The poll was conducted by renowned research firm Ipsos Synovate and its head Tom Wolf stated that the poll showed that Kenyans were aware of what to expect from the government.

" The poll shows that the level of awareness amongst Kenyans has risen and many now know what they are to expect from the government," he said.

On a political stand-point, 45% of supporters of the ruling Jubilee coalition said that they felt the impact of the budget, while on the other hand, 64% of opposition CORD supporters felt that the budget achieved zero impact.

The poll comes on the day the Treasury is set to release an expanded KES 2 trillion budget for the year 2015-16, which Kenyans will be more and more keen to find out the benefits of.

" Kenyans want to see their hard earned tax spent well and they will be keen to hear what Treasury CC Henry Rotich has to say about the budget," Nairobi based financial analyst Jimmy Ngang'a told News24.

" We already know where the money will be spent but Kenyans will want to hear it from the horses mouth come budget time".
