The president-elect Dr. William Ruto's joy upon being sworn-in in a few days to come will dearly be hurdled by things that require his attention. There are a couple of challenges awaiting the new administration if at all the apex court doesn't nullify their victory should a petition be filed challenging the IEBC's declaration.
According to Standard Media, it learned that the new administration is riddled with many challenges that require urgent addressing. Below are a few:
1. High public debts. The incoming administration will need to borrow money in order to address the most pressing needs before they can figure out how to grow income.
2. Corruption and wastage. Last year, President Uhuru Kenyatta claimed that Kenya loses sh2billion every day, stolen by corrupt government officials. Other than corruption, there is a huge wastage of public resources by civil servants as pointed out by the Auditor General.
3. Healthcare and sanitation. Ruto promised to implement universal healthcare (UHC) to ensure that every Kenyan has access to basic medical care.
4. High cost of living.
5. Lack of decent jobs.
6. Education and high taxes.
