A new survey conducted by IPSOS has established none of the 2022 presidential front runners William Ruto and Raila Odinga will win in round one.
This was after the research revealed that more than 3.8 percent of the total voters registered will not cast their votes if elections were held today.
According to the survey, the former Prime Minister enjoys 47 percent support of Kenyans, while 41 percent of Kenyans would vote for Deputy President William Ruto.
As such, the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) presidential candidate William Ruto has urged the more than 800,000 voters who could not cast their votes to do so.

“The punishment given to good people who don’t vote is to be led by fools. Good people like us seating here, if you don’t show up to vote should not complain when the wrong people are voted for,” William Ruto said.

“Whoever you want, I will give you a knife, if it is a knife to guide and protect you or to cut you, then you will know that we have quarreled as we are talking about. The knife has two sides, to take care of the house or to cut and kill the children… choose for yourself,” Uhuru said.
