NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — A survey by the Kenyan government's anti-corruption watchdog shows that half of the citizens believe corruption has increased under President Uhuru Kenyatta's administration.

According to the survey released by the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission Tuesday, 74 percent of the population believes the level of corruption is high.

Kenyatta took office in April 2013 and has repeatedly promised to eradicate graft amid pressure locally and internationally for him take action against the problem. Despite firing six ministers implicated in corruption, critics say Kenyatta is not doing enough, as high-profile suspects remain free. Philip Kinisu, chairman of the ethics commission, says $6 billion, or a third of the country's budget, has been lost to graft.
