The Deputy President of Kenya (formerly the vice-president of Kenya) is the second-highest political official in the Kenyan government. The deputy president is the principal assistant of the president and deputises for the president in executive functions. Prior to the 2010 Constitution of Kenya, the deputy president was known as the vice president. While the vice president was appointed by the president, the deputy president is elected as part of a joint ticket with the President of Kenya. In addition, unlike the previous situation where the vice president would usually have a Cabinet Ministry to hold, the deputy president is not permitted to hold any other state or public office

Before the 2010 Constitution of Kenya, the Deputy President was known as the Vice President.
