Varied Reactions as List of Top 100 Politicians in Kenya is Released With Popular Names Missing Out

In the list that has been trending on social media, President Uhuru Kenyatta tops, closely followed by embattled Deputy president William Ruto and opposition leader Raila Odinga who are 2nd and 3rd respectively.

Kenyans would expect either ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi or Wiper chief Kalonzo Musyoka to come 4th after Uhuru, Ruto and Raila, but it's Makueni governor Kivutha Kibwana who slithers his way to position 4.

Shockingly, Kakamega governor Wycliffe Oparanya and his Kisumu counterpart Anyang Nyong'o come 5th and 6th respectively ahead of Musalia Mudavadi and Kalonzo Musyoka.

However, a section of Kenyans who have reacted to the list have questioned the criteria that was used to rank this politicians with big names like Hassan Joho and Former Nairobi county governor Mike Sonko missing from the top 10.

Governor Joho is languishing in position 31, with politicians like Alice Wahome, Martin Wambora and COTU SG Francis Atwoli ahead of him.
