Kidero an unpopulur governor poll says, but Governor hits back

12 November 2014, 17:49 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero is the most unpopular County leader in the country, a poll has said.

Kidero, together with Kisumu Governor Jack Ranguma have been polled as the most underperforming Governors in the country in a new poll released Wednesday.

In a poll sponsored by the Constitution and Reform Education Consortium, the poll said that 53% of Nairobi residents were unhappy with what Kidero had served up thus far.

Ranguma also polled badly, 67% of respondents saying he was underperforming.

Issues such as service delivery, the state of roads and garbage collection were high on the agenda of those unhappy with their leadership.

This follows a revelation by Kidero that the Nairobi County Government is running on a KES 21 billion revenue deficit.

Kidero said Wednesday that the Nairobi County government has an income of just over KES 19 billion to an expenditure of KES 40 billion.

He also said that despite the hardships, no one was complaining.

" You can see how hard it is to operate in the current environment but no one is complaining, he retorted Wednesday.

Mombasa county's Hassan Joho has a positive 61% rating, Trans Nzoia's Patrick Khaemba 59%, Julius Malombe of Kitui 57, Lamu's Issa Timamy 50.
