The Orange Democratic Movement Governor has been at the helm of the county since 2013 and so far has performed excellently according to the data.
The race for his succession is also becoming tougher by the day as more and more candidates throw their hats into the melée of succeeding him.
Here are the top three so far:
Senator Sam Ongeri
Ongeri has been at the top of Kisii Politics for the longest time and served in the Moi regime as well as the Kibaki one.
He is a former Member of Parliament for Nyaribari Masaba Constituency and is now the Senator for Kisii County.
The veteran politician who despite his age, is in the race for the position of Governor in 2022 and has emerged as one of the top contenders.

59 year old James Omingo Magara was once one of the closest confidants of the Former Prime Minister of Kenya, Raila Odinga in Kisiiland.
Omingo Magara is also a former Member of Parliament for the South Mugirango Constituency which he served until 2009.
He is one of the strongest candidates in the race for the succession of James Ongwae in next year's polls.
He also has his own party People's Democratic Party which is very strong in Kisii County Politics.

MP Simba Arati
The current Member of Parliament for Dagoretti North has expressed his interest in the soon to be vacant seat for Kisii County Government.
Arati is a popular Politician in Kisii despite honing his political skills in Nairobi's Dagoretti North Constituency.

It will be interesting to see who succeeds James Ongwae as Governor of Kisii County which is widely seen as an Orange Democratic Movement party arena.
