Here Is What Kenyans Searched Most Online In October That Has Amazed Many

According to data from Google Search for October, Kenyans were most interested in Travis Maina, a 2-year-old who accidentally got a fork Jembe stuck on his head while playing at home.

Among the main searches were for a new Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) head and a new Aide-de-Camp, Colonel Fabian Lengusuranga.

The boy's final days, which included his passing away during surgery at Kenyatta National Hospital, sparked a contentious discussion over Kenya's ability to handle such medical emergencies.

Following the inauguration of newly elected President William Ruto as Kenya's fifth president, Kenyans were curious about who would succeed former President Uhuru Kenyatta's ADC Lieutenant Colonel Timothy Lekolool.

Many individuals also looked up the meaning of the newly renamed Huduma Day, formerly known as Moi Day, online. Mashujaa Day attracted interest as well, especially as it was the first public and national occasion under the leadership of the new President Ruto.

Job seekers focused their attention on the Office of the Data Protection Commissioner after it posted new openings with the intention of filling them with qualified candidates for a range of positions.

Marjorie Oludhe Macgoye, a British-born author and poet who came to be recognized as the mother of Kenyan literature, marked her 94th birthday with a Google doodle, which drew a lot of interest from Kenyans who wanted to know more about her.

She mostly wrote on Kenya's post-colonial battles, but she also published children's books, magazine pieces, and a wide range of other works.

The search results also show that Kenyans want to stay up to date on breaking international entertainment news, particularly about new movies and popular television shows.

Many people also looked for information on Alex Jones the creator of the far-right conspiracy theory and fake news website Info Wars. The court ordered him to provide the relatives of the eight victims of the Sandy Hook shooting $1 B in restitution. Jones had asserted that the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre in Newtown, Connecticut, which left 20 first graders and six teachers dead, was a government hoax.
