Even as the country enters its second day of the 2019 national Census, many Kenyans continue to express their feelings concerning the exercise with many taking to their social media sites to express their joy of being counted.

Not left behind on the already trending exercise are the Kenyan politicians who took to their social media accounts to urge Kenyans to embrace the counting with many posting their pictures together with Census Enumerators in their palatial homes.

While some of the politicians were humble enough to offer some cups of tea to the Enumerators, some according to Kenyans were, however, ‘mean’ only allowing the counting team to take the statistics from the veranda of their homes.

Here are some of the photo compilations of Kenya’s politicians who were counted on the first day of the 2019 National Census;
