Kenyans trust media the most, survey shows

16 November 2015, 14:53 Arap Yego

Nairobi - Media is the most trusted institution in Kenya, a new nationwide survey has shown.

A recent opinion poll conducted by Infotrak Research Consulting Firm released Sunday found out that an overwhelming majority of Kenyans have total faith in the media.

According to the survey findings which comes at a time when the government has been trying to muzzle freedom of the press, 83% of Kenyans have faith in the media and are satisfied with the watchdog role played by journalists.

“Media’s consistent reporting of issues as an objective and dynamic watchdog may have attributed to the high approval rating,” said Infotrak CEO Angela Ambitho, while releasing the survey results.

The civil society and office of the Director of Public Prosecution were ranked at number two and three with 66.1 % and 63 % respectively.

National Cohesion and Integration Commission was fourth at 62.6 %, County governments fifth at 59.7% and the opposition sixth at 58.4 %.

Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) was at the bottom with less than half of respondents expressing confidence in the isntutition. Only 48.6 % of Kenyans have faith in the anti- corruption agency.

“The low approval rating for EACC could be attributed to Kenyans disappointment with the fight against the seemingly heightened corruption,” said Ms Ambitho.

The infotrak survey findings was based on a sample of 1 000 respondents who were interviewed. The survey was conducted in 25 counties from all the former 8 provinces of Kenya between November 6 and November 9.
