Top young MPs ranking

In a recent ranking of the top-performing young Members of Parliament (MPs) in Kenya, a study conducted by Infotrak revealed that three exceptional legislators have emerged as the cream of the crop.

Leading the pack is MP Ndindi Nyoro of Kiharu, who garnered an impressive 70% approval rating, making him the standout performer among young MPs in 2023. He was closely followed by Paul Mwirigi, the MP for Igembe South, Christopher Wangaya from Khwisero, and Peter Salasya, representing Mumias East, all tied at an impressive 66%.

Naisula Lesuuda, MP for Samburu West, secured the fifth spot with a remarkable 63%, alongside Francis Kuria of Molo and Reuben Kiborek of Mogotio, both tying at the same percentage.

John Kaguchia of Mukurweini stood out in the 8th position with a commendable 61%, while Babu Owino, the MP for Embakasi East, was ranked 9th with 59%. Gideon Kipkoech representing Keiyo South joined the list of top-performing young MPs with 59%.

Additionally, Infotrak’s research positioned Ndindi Nyoro as the overall top-performing MP in Kenya, closely followed by Peter Irungu, the MP for Kangema. The third spot was a tie between John Mwrigi (Igembe South), Gideon Mulyungi (Mwingi Central), Christopher Wangaya (Khwisero), Rober Mbui (Kathiani), and George Kaluma (Homa Bay).

Tying for the eighth position were Geoffrey Wandeto (Tetu) and James Githua (Kabete).

The Infotrak survey was conducted between July and September 2023, encompassing all 47 counties and gathering data from approximately 58,700 respondents. Each county was treated individually, and a cluster sample size was determined based on population and the number of wards in each respective county.

The survey was conducted in two phases, the first involving 36,200 participants in July and August, and the second, with 22,500 participants, aimed to boost the sample size, ensuring that each subcounty had at least 200 respondents.

This ranking serves as a testament to the dedication and performance of young MPs in Kenya, as recognized by the public’s sentiments and opinions.
