Nairobi - 84% of Kenyans have confidence in the leadership of President Uhuru Kenyatta, a poll has said.
The poll, fronted by pollster Strategic Africa, also added that 11% of Kenyans are not confident in his leadership, while 3% are hoping he does not return as President in the 2017 General Elections.
78% of Kenyans also feel that the country is headed in the right direction, while just over 19% feel that the country is headed in the opposite direction.
The poll also stated that most Kenyans are happy with the visit to the country by US President Barack Obama.
" Kenyans are quite confident in the leadership of the country going by the numbers that have been collected," the poll said.
2004 Kenyans in 31 Counties were polled in the survey, which took place early August.
" Most Kenyans are of the view that the one action President Uhuru should take to act decisively on corruption in Kenya is to appoint a credible anti-corruption authority," the poll said.
Kenyans feel that Uhuru's best performances lie in Foreign Relations (65.5 per cent), Health (57.6 per cent), National Unity (51.9 per cent) and Good Governance (49.3 per cent).
His worst are in Corruption (31.1 per cent), Rule of Law (35.4 per cent), Security (38.2 per cent) and Job Creation (39.2 per cent).
