survey form containing the branding of Kenya Ni Mimi, an initiative spearheaded by the Ministry of ICT, Innovation and Youth Affairs, is a HOAX.

The survey form contains five pages. On the first page, a message states that the answers being gathered in the survey are to aid policy-makers and stakeholders draft an implementation framework policy to respond to the needs of youth in Kenya.

“This will enable the initiative to bring young people together in collective action to explore youth-led solutions to challenges affecting them, and to promote the health and well-being of young persons across the country,” reads the message.

While the survey is free of charge, participants are promised compensation of KSh 200 deposited in their prefered mobile money account upon filling and submitting the form, the message adds.

The second page of the survey form asks for personal information including name, age bracket, gender and marital status. It also asks participants to indicate their nationality, level of education, and occupation.

The questionnaire continues to a third page of questions covering the participants’ sense of identity, purpose and inclusion.

The fourth page of the questionnaire asks participants to answer questions about perception, life opportunities and patriotism.

After answering all the questions, the survey form asks survey participants to provide a mobile money transfer number where compensation for their internet bundles spent filling out the form will be sent.

PesaCheck took part in the survey and keyed in a mobile number as instructed. But at the time of publishing this article, the phone number had not been credited as promised in the claim.

There is no information about the survey on the legitimate website of Kenya Ni Mimi campaign nor on its social media pages such as Twitter and Instagram.

On June 10, 2021, the Kenya Ni Mimi posted a screenshot of the survey and disowned it.

“It has come to our notice that a certain survey has been taking its rounds on social media platforms claiming to be from us! This survey is not from Kenya Ni Mimi and we term it as fake! Kindly beware of it! Our Kenya Ni Mimi survey is on our website and nowhere else,” read the post on Twitter.

PesaCheck has looked into the survey form containing the branding of Kenya Ni Mimi, an initiative spearheaded by the Ministry of ICT, Innovation and Youth Affairs, and finds it to be a HOAX.
