Cherargei under fire for rating Ruto’s performance at 101%

Nandi Senator Samson Cheragei has once again found himself in the eye of a social media storm over his statement on President William Ruto’s scorecard.

Speaking at a fundraiser for the construction of the ACK Plaza Mall, Nandi County Senator Cherargei said President Ruto had scored over 101% in his first year in office against Azimio leader Raila Odinga who scored 30% in his opposition role.

“In fact, Tinga, Azimio-OKA have scored an F (failure) in their opposition role,” he said.

Cherargei’s comments sparked a backlash online, with Kenyans criticising the government over the country’s economic situation, particularly the skyrocketing price of fuel.

“You can blur poor governance with propaganda. But when the fundamentals of the economy are broken, no amount of propaganda can change this. The exchange rate will expose you,” one George Tsitati commented on Twitter.

Senator Cherargei responded to Tsitati by saying he should understand the fuel crisis is a global issue and he should ask the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) to stop cutting supply.

“To give Ruto 101% is far-fetched. Kenya’s government is like a flight that has taken off, and we still have turbulence. The pilot cannot engage autopilot yet. We as a country need to get out of the turbulence before we clap for the pilot,” Aloice commented.

“Mheshimiwa wacha uongo (Stop lying). The president has tried, but he has not scored 101%. As leaders, we ought to support the president by being genuine and honest. We have a long way to go,” Mutua Lloyd commented.

“Hii story ya, ‘Rome wasn’t built in a day…’ Well, at least the day came when ordinary people realized that construction was taking place. But if the common man or woman can’t feel it, ita baki tu kuwa hekaya “One Datundo Atundo stated.

Senator Cherargei’s comment comes days after Infotrak released Ruto’s scorecard.

According to the research by Infotrack, President Ruto’s performance only received an average grade of ‘C, while the office of the Deputy President occupied by Rigathi Gachagua received a grade of ‘D.’.

Speaking at the launch of the research, Infotrak Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Angela Ambitho said most Kenyans are largely concerned about the high cost of living, unemployment, affordable quality education, agriculture, access to affordable healthcare, and corruption.
