President Uhuru Kenyatta, former President Mwai Kibaki, and Opposition leader Raila leader were also mentioned in the survey as corrupt leaders by 5 percent of those surveyed.

In the survey question, Ipsos asked Kenyans: “Of all the current and past but still alive political leaders you can think of, which two do you think are or were most corrupt.”

The polls come at a time when President Kenyatta has revamped his fight against corruption after vowing that the vice must come to an end.

After the tough declaration Kenyans have witnessed the arrest of several high-ranking officials including Busia Governor Sospeter Ojaamong and former Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero. However, there have been zero convictions.

The study further indicated 73 percent of Kenyans do not believe that those implicated in corruption will be convicted while 51 percent say that Mr. Kenyatta fight against corruption is a sincere one.
