An opinion poll on President Kenyatta's likely successor in 2022 has got on Kenyans' nerves

The poll comes barely months after the conclusion of a divisive presidential election

The survey by global research firm IPSOS indicates that majority of Kenyans at 30 per cent believe Deputy President William Ruto is likely to become the country's next President.

The poll, which interviewed over 3,500 people interviewed across all regions in the country, also rated National Super Alliance leader Raila Odinga at 14 per cent, under the category of Kenyans who are certain he will occupy the top office in the country at some point.

And while the results of the survey were announced, Kenyans online were displeased with the timing of the release saying it was "too early and totally uncalled for."

The netizens argued that the country is on a path to recovery from the political quagmire that was last year's presidential elections and hence the opinion poll on Mr Kenyatta's successor was "ridiculous."
