Eleven per cent of Kenyans, according to the poll, feel the Ministry of Health was their hero with 10 per cent saying Deputy President William Ruto was the hero.
And in what could send the government back to the drawing board, nearly two-thirds of Kenyans feel the reversal of the Covid 19 tax reliefs was not well throughout out.
A similar per cent age feel the government did not do well in running the economy to with 30 per cent saying the government did well.
