According to the most recent opinion survey by Intel Research Solutions, William Ruto, the deputy president, is most likely to become Kenya’s fifth president in August while former prime minister Raila Odinga is his route to Bondo in Siaya County.
Ruto is running for president in the Kenya Kwanza Alliance, whereas Raila Odinga is running in the Azimio-One Kenya Alliance.
The survey predicts that Ruto will win the election on August 9 with 49.9% of the vote and Raila would finish second with 42.5 percent.
Both David Mwaure of the Agano Party and George Wajackoyah of the Roots Party had ratings of 2.8 percent and 1.1 percent, respectively. 3.7% of voters are undecided.
The survey was released two weeks after Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i, ICT colleague Joe Mucheru, and Interior Principal Secretary Karanja Kibicho reported that Raila Odinga had a 64 percent lead in the most recent National Intelligence Service (NIS) poll.
Raila’s campaign for president in August is being supported by President Uhuru Kenyatta and his men.
