King of 2022 trends: Riggy G is the most searched personality in Kenya

Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua is the most searched Kenyan personality on Google 2022.

Popular known as ‘Riggy G’, Gachagua was the most interesting person among Kenyans as they sought to find more about him after he was announced as President William Ruto’s running mate on May 15.

According to data released by Google on Wednesday, Gachagua’s interest on the search engine hit an all-time high during the General Election month, especially between August 14 and 20.

His top searches included; Who is Rigathi Gachagua? Rigathi Gachagua father, and Rigathi Gachagua Wikipedia.

Following him was NARC Kenya party leader Martha Karua, who was the deputy presidential candidate for the Azimio La Umoja coalition.

Her popularity on the platform spiked shortly after she was announced by Raila Odinga as his running mate on May 16, and although traffic about her was high during the polls, it never reached the May numbers.
