20 Top Kenyan websites built with WordPress

kenyan websites built with wordpress

One of the reasons why I love WordPress is that it’s versatile. You can use WordPress to build any kind of website you desire – from a personal blog, business website to an e-commerce website.

Powering over 34% of all the websites on the web, it’s no surprise that WordPress has been adopted as the platform of choice in different industries.

Globally, WordPress powers big brands and portals like The Whitehouse, BBC America, TechCrunch, The Next Web, Beyonce, among others.

In Kenya too, WordPress powers most of the websites I have come across. I have made a list of some the top websites in Kenya built using WordPress. The list ranges from Government, education, banking, hotel, insurance, news and media, real estate and law firm websites.
