Ruto comments on the CSs ranked as the worst-performing Cabinet Secretaries on the report

President William Ruto expressed complete distrust in Trends and Insights For Africa (TIFA) and other opinion polls that have portrayed his administration negatively. 

In a shared media interview at Statehouse on Sunday, December 17, the Head of State accused TIFA of engaging in fraudulent activities and insinuated that they are financially motivated to damage the reputation of his government. 

When questioned about the Cabinet Secretaries who were ranked as the least effective in the report, the President provided his comments.


“I don’t believe in TIFA or any opinion poll for that matter. TIFA are frauds; they are paid,” President Ruto asserted.

Ruto additionally asserted that TIFA had predicted he would never assume the presidency.

“TIFA said I would never be President and that I would never win,” he added.

Ruto’s candid remarks closely follow the release of TIFA’s latest report on Wednesday, December 13, 2023.

TIFA report on CSs’ performance

As per TIFA’s findings, Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki emerged as the top-performing Cabinet Secretary in Ruto’s administration. Kindiki, formerly the highest-rated, achieved a 65 percent approval rating in the survey conducted between November 25 and December 7, 2023.

Following closely, Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi, who also serves as the Foreign Affairs CS, secured the second position with a 62 percent approval rating, while Education CS Ezekiel Machogu claimed the third spot with a 58 percent approval rating.

The survey revealed that 83 percent of Kenyans were familiar with Kindiki, with 80 percent being aware of Machogu. Mudavadi was recognized by 78 percent of Kenyans, Murkomen by 75 percent, and Nakhumicha by 59 percent.

However, the report also highlighted the worst-performing Cabinet Secretaries in terms of public approval. These included Alice Wahome in Lands and Housing with a 24 percent rating, Zacharia Njeru in Water with a 24 percent rating, Njuguna Ndung’u in National Treasury with a 24 percent rating, Aisha Jumwa in Gender with a 23 percent rating, and Davis Chirchir in Energy & Petroleum with a 19 percent rating.

“An analysis of the top 10 Cabinet Secretaries’ visits (based on available data) highlights a notable disproportion, with a concentration of 32% of their visits in Nairobi, surpassing the city’s 11% representation in the national population. This observation suggests that factors determining the number of such visits go beyond population alone. Such factors likely include proximity to their offices, the presence of strategic infrastructure, and particular events that require government attention, among others,” TIFA stated in the report.
