We know people usually search for the weirdest things on Google and it can be a good indication of the zeitgeist of the month. Google has now released the trending searches made by Kenyans on April 2019 and they are sure filled with interesting tidbits.
Starting off with the top trends made by Kenyans in April, the top was undoubtedly Huduma Namba. The national launch of this government exercise which involves collecting biometric data to register citizens afresh was all the news in April.
On second place, the death of the American rapper Nipsey Hussle was second. His death at the begging of the month was a tragedy and it is surprising that it was second on this list.
Third place was the Europa League which is more in line with Kenyans since they love football so much. This was quickly followed by the Sportpesa app in fourth place which shows how much Kenyans love gambling.
In fifth place was the Marvel Comics villain Thanos and it is thanks to the latest Avengers Movie End Game which is doing very well at the box office. There is also tremendous interest on this character thanks to that neat Google Easter egg they did with Thanos recently.
The next top 5 searches include the death of Jonathan Moi, murder of the university student Ivy Wangechi, Cyclone Kenneth, terrorist bombing attack in Sri Lanka and the intriguing story of the Kakamega twins.
My favourite trending searches category is the How to. This shows you what a majority of Kenyans online are asking on Google and it has a few gems. Here is the list.
- lose weight.
- withdraw money from sportpesa
- cook mandazi
- join illuminati
- get pregnant
- lose weight
- play Shabiki
- make pancakes
