When he took over power on Tuesday, September 13, 2022, President William Ruto publicly outlined broad measures his new administration was going to take to grow tax compliance levels, which will be critical in his plan to wean Kenya off costly external debts gradually.
In his inauguration speech at the Kasarani Stadium, the new head of state announced measures to tackle the food crisis and bring down the cost of living, perhaps the most pressing challenge of his administration in the first 100 days, including slashing fertiliser prices.

But the heavier task ahead for the new president, as he settles down to work, will be dealing with the mountain of debt, the wage bill crisis, pending bills, and unemployment.
Ahead of his inauguration, Ruto directed the Kenya Revenue Authority (KRA) to adopt a friendlier but more efficient tax administration system to increase compliance levels in an economy dominated by the informal sector.

Ruto has said tax compliance is critical in expanding the program, empowering the economically underprivileged groups through the “bottom-up economic model”.
The model, which featured prominently in his campaign platform for the August 9 closely-contested presidential poll, is anchored on “deliberately promoting investment and financial instruments targeting the millions who are unemployed, hustler [micro] enterprises, and the farmer groups”.
In this listicle, TUKO.co.ke looks at what Ruto has been able to roll out in his first 100 days in Office.
1. Appointed pending Court of Appeal judges.
2. Operationalisation of the Judiciary Fund.
3. Handed financial autonomy to the Inspector General of Police.
4. Allocated specific responsibilities to Deputy President and Prime Cabinet Secretary.

Ruto's first 100 days in Office lapsed on Tuesday, December 13, 2022.
He had promised to revive the country's economy within three months and lower the cost of living.
The head of state promised to reduce unga prices, the cost of fuel, and fertiliser prices and introduce cheap credit for small business owners.
During his inauguration speech, Ruto ordered a reduction in fertiliser prices from KSh 6,500 to KSh 3,500 per 50kg bag.
Against this backdrop, TUKO.co.ke looked at the list of economic promises the President failed to fulfil in his 100 days in Office.
