Tom Wolf, who is a lead researcher at Tifa, explained that the appearance and rise of either Roots Party of Kenya presidential candidate George Wajackoyah and David Mwaure of Agano Party are sufficient to raise the possibility that neither Odinga nor Ruto will secure a strong win in the first round of voting.
Speaking in Bungoma during his tour of the Western Region, the Kenya Kwanza Alliance presidential flag bearer William Ruto dismissed the opinion polls that showed Raila is more popular than him.
The 2022 presidential front-runner said that the choice of who becomes the president is a reserve of the majority of Kenyan voters, not a few doctored pollsters.
“Wacha kutusumbua na opinion poll wananchi ndio watakaoamua mwezi wa nane (Stop bothering us with opinion polls citizens will decide in August),” Ruto said.
He said that the Kenya Kwanza Alliance manifesto has whitewashed Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya coalition party adding that the Raila Odinga-led coalition has resorted to banking on fake opinion polls to confuse voters.
“Tumewashinda na manifesto, mipango, sera na campaign. Wamebaki na fake opinion polls. Kazi yao ni kuchora ooh sijui nani atashinda, ooh nani ako mbele, wacha kutusmbua nani, kwani wale wanafanya opinion polls ndio wataamua?” Ruto said.
Loosely translated to “We have defeated them with manifestos, plans, policies, and campaigns. They are left with fake opinion polls. Their job is to draw ooh I don’t know who will win, ooh who is ahead, stop harassing us, because those who do opinion polls will decide?” Ruto posed.
