Has Senator Gideon Moi Been Ranked Last in a Recent Job Performance Poll?

By Simon Muli

The above is a screengrab of a Facebook post claiming that the senator of Baringo County, Gideon Moi, ranks last in the latest Infotrak Performance Index.

Introduction

The post is accompanied by a photograph of Mr Moi showing he took 47th position out of the 47 senators in the country.

The post was shared on November 11, the same day that Infotrack, the research and consulting firm, released its latest Senate, Consolidated MCA’s and County Assembly Performance Index dubbed ‘CountyTrak’.

Verification

However, according to the report, Mr Moi is ranked in position 34 rather than 47 as claimed by the Facebook post.

Senator Moi ranks in the same position as his Lamu counterpart, Anuar Loitiptip.

The ranking, which is based on citizens’ appraisal of elected county leaders, has the Senator for Makueni County, Mutula Kilonzo Jnr, ranked as the best performing, followed by his Elgeyo Marakwet counterpart, Kipchumba Murkomen.

The senator for Tana River County, Golich Wario, is ranked in position 47, while his Wajir counterpart, Ibrahim Abdulahi, came in second last.

Verdict

PesaCheck has looked into the claim that the senator for Baringo County, Gideon Moi, is ranked last in the latest Infotrak Performance Index, and finds it to be FALSE.
