Purposive and Simple random sampling techniques were applied using a questionnaire and interview guide as data collection instruments. Quantitative data was analyzed using the Pearson’s correlation co-efficient technique and Pairwise comparisons to draw at the correlations and inferential statistics to test the hypothesis. Qualitative data was analyzed using thematic analysis whereby data was recorded into themes and codes were identified and conclusions done according to the study objectives.
