by Victor Matara

As of 2019, the current population of Kenya is estimated at 47,564,296  based on the latest report by the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics. The report says that Kenya’s population grew by 9 million people between 2009 and 2019. Nairobi is the most populated county in Kenya with 4,397,073 people.

The rapid population growth in Kenya can easily be attributed to high fertility rates in the previous decade which have been backed up by improvement in health facilities and increase in life expectancy.

Without further ado,  here are the 10 most populated counties in Kenya according to 2019 Census report.
