According to a new opinion poll released by Infotrak Research, Raila and Ruto are locked in a neck-to-neck tight race.
In a move aimed at producing an outright winner in round one, Kenya Kwanza Alliance and Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya coalition party presidential candidates William Ruto and Raila Odinga have lined up a series of rallies as we move closer to the August General Election.
With just 24 days of campaigns left, Raila Odinga is targeting over 90 rallies while the deputy president has planned at least 80 rallies across the country between Friday, July 15, and Friday, August 5.
The official campaign period will close on Saturday, August 6, ahead of the voting day which is slated for Tuesday, August 9.
Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya Coalition Party Council Secretary Junet Mohamed told the People Daily that the former prime minister plans to address a minimum of four rallies every day for the remaining period.
“The remaining days will be a defining period for us. We have to reach all areas and sell our policies to our supporters,” Junet who is also the Suna East MP said.
For the 77-years-old to hit the target, Junet said Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya coalition party leaders will split into three groups that will be spread out in Nairobi, Nakuru, Western, North Eastern, and Ukambani regions.
Ruto, who data shows that he has been losing at least 300,000 votes every day in the last 30 days, is expected to hold at least five rallies a day for the remaining period.
The second in command is expected to tour at least 46 counties in the next 24 days.
