The lawyer’s followers were pleased with his sentiments, with most applauding him for his kindness.

In research done by TIFA in 2019, the high cost of living and employment were reported as some of the challenges faced by most Kenyans.
“The high cost of living is ranked as the number one problem facing Kenyans in all national surveys by TIFA. These sentiments are supported by macro-economic indicators – for instance, the annual inflation rate rose from 3.38 percent in September 2019 to 5.56 percent in November 2019. As a result, Kenyans are feeling the pinch as they spend more to buy Unga,” Maggie Ireri, a researcher told The Standard on December 30, 2019.
Kenya’s economic growth in 2019 was 5.7 percent, a decrease from 2018’s 5.8 percent.
