President Uhuru Kenyatta was under fire on Thursday after tweeting a CNN opinion poll as a World Bank report that projected Kenya’s economy will be among Africa’s top two in the next twenty years.
Hawk eyed Kenyans on Twitter took notice of the mix up and blasted the President on his handles and that of the State House.
The CNN poll was conducted by the “Quest Means Business” host Richard Quest who covered the inaugural Kenya-US direct flight.
A World Bank report dubbed “The Doing Business 2019 report” ranked Kenya at position 61 up from 80 in Ease of doing business index.

This was a CNN poll Your Excellency. What indicators were accessed and analyzed by @WorldBank ?

Some correction here Mr President:
It's World Bank's The Doing Business 2019 report that ranks KE at position 61,up from 80.
It's CNN's TV poll during Quest means Business show where 44pc of viewers who responded say KE will lead Africa in next 20yrs.
