Mandera Senator Billow Kerrow has welcomed the rankings of senators done by Infotrak Research and consulting on behalf of the Daily Nation.

Ranked No. 19 with 53% approval rating, Kerrow said that the rating was a pleasant surprise given the general confusion among most Kenyans about the role of senators.

“I want to thank the residents of Mandera, across the board, for their kind perception of my performance. This confidence gives me all the courage to pursue my mandate even more vigorously, and I will in sha Allah not disappoint the residents of our great county”

Garissa Senator Yussuf Haji was ranked No. 32 with 49.6% while Wajir’s Abdirahman Ali is at position 43 with 44.2 percent.

The survey was carried out between December last year and February this year, with 2,800 people interviewed countrywide.

According to the pollster, the survey was conducted through computer assisted telephone interviews among adults in various counties.

Forty six counties were ranked, leaving out Homa Bay because at the time it was not represented in the Senate following the death of Mr Otieno Kajwang. He has since been succeeded by his younger brother, Moses.

Infotrak CEO Angela Ambitho said respondents were asked: How would you rate the performance of your senator on a scale of 1-10 where 1 is extremely poor and 10 is excellent?

“It’s important to note that the CountyTrak Senators approval index is limited to the perception of the respective county residents.” She said.
