President Uhuru Kenyatta will today become the first Kenyan politician to reach 1 million Facebook likes. He is also easily the most active politicians in the region, with constant updates and photos.
His digital team, I must say, has done some splendid job keeping the fans informed. It’s not clear how often he posts himself, if he ever does, but he recently revealed that he checks in on the comments to capture the desires of Kenyans.
Uhuru is just the third Kenyan individual to hit this milestone, after Churchill and Lupita. KTN was the first to do so last year, followed by NTV.
Also among the most liked pages is Citizen TV which will have their big day next month.
In the political scene, President Uhuru has no peer, after Raila’s page was hacked and deleted. Ruto’s page also seems to have disappeared without a trace. Sonko is however doing well with a strong 545,000 likes.
