Is 26 Uhuru Kenyatta's lucky number?

The question of what is your lucky number has popped up in conversations for years.
Most still have a problem with identifying what is their lucky number thus forced to guess. However, for President Uhuru Kenyatta, his lucky number is with no doubt 26 and here is why.

1.Total vote count
I know you are probably wondering what has 7,483,103 million votes have to do with number 26. Have you tried adding them up? I know, lame, but they really do add up to 26. I do not know if this is a coincidence, fate, technical issue or just his lucky number coming through for him.

2. ICC
Uhuru resigned his post as the Minister of Finance following his trial at the International Criminal Court(ICC) on January 26, 2012 only to be elected as president of Kenya in March 4.

Also, on November 26, 2013, trial chamber of ICC reconsidered its previous decision excusing Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta from continuous presence at trial.

3. Forbes
In 2011, when Uhuru was Deputy Prime Minister, Forbes ranked him as 26 most richest person in Africa by owning at least 500,000 acres of prime land across the country. Citing that Uhuru and his family also own Brookside Dairies, Kenya’s largest dairy company, as well as stakes in popular television station K24 and a commercial bank in Nairobi, among other interests.

4. Birthday
It is now sold out information that Mr. Kenyatta’s birthday is on October 26, especially after the crowd at BOMAS of Kenya chanted Happy birthday to the president-elect. This highlights the peak of his lucky number because it’s the genesis and trendsetter of events.

5. Re-elected
It would be a different story if he was trounced in the October 26 repeat presidential elections or was at the mercy of a run-off. However, on that day, 7.4 million people took to the ballot to vote for Uhuru, which saw him declared as the president elect on October 30th.
