Machakos the happiest county in Kenya.. Where is yours?

29 April 2015, 18:32 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - A survey has found that Machakos County is the happiest in the country. Where does yours lie?

The survey by pollster Infotrak LTD named Machakos as the County which had the happiest residents with devolved units of government in the country.

Provision of health services, roads, transport and public works, early childhood education, agriculture and prevention of pollution were some of the traits in which respondents were asked to comment on and which Machakos came top.

The poll took place between December 2014 and February 2015 and surveyed upto 28,000 people.

Machakos thus came top with 61.5%.

Here is the list of the top 10 happiest counties.

1. Machakos.

2. Bungoma

3. Vihiga.

4. Bomet

5. Kwale

6. Elgeyo Marakwet.

7. Taita Taveta.

8. Kisii.

9. West Pokot

10. Kakamega

The country's biggest cities and towns were not in the top ten, with Nairobi, Mombasa and Kisumu all missing out.

Also, no Counties in Central Kenya made the top 10.

The Rift Valley, Western Kenya and Coast regions dominated the top rankings, with Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua proud of the achievement.

" We have tried hard to ensure that the people of Machakos have a better existence in their lives and it is nice to see it paying off, he said.
