In early March, Uhuru, then still a presidential candidate, overtook comedian Daniel Ndambuki, to have the most liked page in the country. 
This was the message his campaign team released.

Hi all,

We thank the Social Media fraternity in Kenya, bloggers and general internet users for making the Jubilee Presidential Candidate Uhuru Kenyatta’s Facebook page the most popular in Kenya. At the moment (time of sending this mail), the likes stand at 423,337, and rising every second.

We wish to assure Kenyan bloggers that when the Jubilee Coalition wins the 2013 elections on Monday, the new government will mainstream Social Media in governance and administration.

“Ours is not just a pledge–we have used social media in the past. As Minister for Finance, we compiled the budget together through twitter. And during the compilation of our manifesto you (bloggers) played a big part in that important initiative”,noted Uhuru.

Thank You .

God Bless Kenya.

Jubilee Presidential Campaign Team. 

At that time, NTV Kenya stood at number 3, but Churchill has since lost the second spot to East Africa’s largest media house.
At the time of this writing, the top 3 look like so.

Uhuru Kenyatta – 500,640
NTV Kenya – 484,393
Daniel “Churchill” Ndambuki -456,305

In a period of 56 days, president Uhuru has gained 77,000 new likes or an average of 40,000 every month. Assuming the trend continues, the president should be the first Kenyan to reach 1 million Facebook likes by May next year.
