Corruption among politicians and the spread of diseases like Aids are top on the list of the biggest problems facing Kenya, a new opinion poll shows.
The random survey also lists poor quality education, crime, ethnic tension and poor quality drinking water as the other major challenges.
The Citizens Satisfaction Survey, conducted by TNS Research International in August in all the eight provinces, compared its results with a similar study it conducted in 2002.
The new one rates corrupt politicians and the spread of diseases as the two biggest problems the country faces — at 93 per cent each.
They are followed by crime and ethnic tension, at 88 per cent, while poor quality education and poor quality drinking water at 70 per cent each.
