Of course, nearly all the politicians are arrogant and egoistic generally, thanks to the wonderful positions and powers clinging tightly to them. After a long chat with people randomly selected, we have come up with this list of 8 most arrogant Kenyan politicians having the highest number of mentions.
While we still wonder if there is an arrogance potion given to men of such calibre before they assume office, keep in mind that these are just a few of the many arrogant politicians in Kenya. These ones on our list are not only the bunch who carry about a huge sack of ego or have an arrogant gait, but also the politicians who are chiefly no-nonsense men and women and have made perfect the act of arrogance. See the list below:
Most Arrogant Kenyan Politicians
1. Francis Kimemia
Francis Kimemia is a Kenyan politician and one of the many politicians who wield enormous power and clout. He is a former Secretary to the Cabinet & Permanent Secretary in the Office of the President. Kimemia is undoubtedly among the politicians that Kenyans regard to be arrogant, rude and ruthlessly ambitious. When the secretary to the cabinet, Francis Kimemia was dropped, Kenyans believed he may have been dropped from President Uhuru’s cabinet because of careless talk, also called ‘political hubris’ and arrogance.
2. Ruto William
Maybe it’s his role as the acting President which lasted for three days or the fact that he is next to power, but there’s something about Ruto which gives him seemingly bigger wings that make a daring significance.
William Samoei Arap Ruto, a Kenyan politician who has been Deputy President of Kenya since 2013 takes the 7th place of the most arrogant Kenyan politicians. He had also served as the Acting President of Kenya between 5 and 8 October 2014 when President Uhuru Kenyatta was away at the Hague. William Ruto has been involved in a series of controversies in the course of his political career. The most prominent and difficult to forget is that of the maize scandal where he was accused of illegally selling maize by Ikolomani MP Bonny Khalwale.
3. Brian Weke
The sixth most arrogant politician in Kenya, Hon. Brian Weke may look simple in photos, but he is very egoistic.
From grass to grace; this is the most suiting description to use to analyze the life of this young politician. Looking at his very successful life one would hardly believe that Brian Weke was once a young matatu tout who lived off his poor earnings.
Could this be the reason for his being egoistic? we cannot say but Weke is undoubtedly an egoistic personality in Kenya’s politics. Today he is the Chief Executive Officer of Institute for Education in Democracy (IED).
4. Rachael Shebesh
We have a woman too in this special category of politicians. Rachael Shebesh who is currently the woman representative of Nairobi’s city-county took the 5th spot of the list of most arrogant politicians in our time. She is undoubtedly egoistic and opinionated but has a good oratorial skill. Rachael was elected under the National Alliance Party which is headed by Kenya’s President.

Jakoyo Midwo is another Kenyan politician who is also arrogant. He took the 4th spot on the list of arrogant politicians in Kenya.
6. Maina Kamanda
Starehe MP, Maina Kamanda is the 3rd most arrogant politician in Kenya. He is always showing excessive superior importance or rights. Of course, all these go with being overwhelmingly proud of himself.
7. Evans Kidero
Does it surprise you to see Evans Kidero on the list of most arrogant Kenyan politicians? Let it not shock you anymore because Evans Kidero is another politician in Kenya whose nature transmits the most arrogant messages to people. The current Governor of Nairobi County who once served as CEO of Mumias Sugar Company for 8 years, resigning in 2012 to join elective politics took the second spot on this list of most arrogant politicians in Kenya. You are right to say that he is way too proud and arrogant to have taken the second spot.
8. Aden Duale
Okay people! This is our number 1 on the list of most arrogant Kenyan politicians. Shockingly, the Majority Leader of the National Assembly of Kenya, Aden Duale is the number 1 most arrogant politician we have in Kenya. I’m sure no one doubts that.
We would have popped the question; why is that so? but that really won’t be necessary, as such will put us all on a long journey of unending arguments.
