MUDAVADI NA WETA KWISHA….As Latest Opinion Poll Results Conducted In Western Kenya Shows Competent Race For The State House released

As politics gets new momentum, the campaign for the statehouse is turning dirty and messy. Leaders vying for various elective positions are scouring the country for votes.

Western Kenya has been converted into a battleground, as it will determine who will succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta as the Fifth President. Raila Odinga has always been the most popular candidate in prior elections held in western Kenya, gaining more votes.

However, it appears that the ground is shifting with William Ruto’s foray into western politics, with a number of regional leaders endorsing his presidential ambition. According to the most recent surveys, William Ruto, the self-proclaimed Chief hustler campaigner, is gaining popularity in the region. Despite Mudavadi and Wetangula uniting behind Ruto, the latest opinion survey released today by Mizani Africa shows that Raila Odinga remains the most popular candidate in Western Kenya.

This occurred during the ANC National Delegate Conference in Bomas, Kenya, a few months ago, when OKA principals parted amicably, with Mudavadi and Wetangula declaring their intention to work with William Ruto.

Since then, Kenya Kwanza-affiliated Western leaders have held multiple rallies to counter Raila’s acidity while promoting Ruto.

Raila Odinga is leading in three counties, namely Vihiga, Kakamega, and Busia, according to the latest opinion poll done today by Mizani, while Deputy President William Ruto is the most desired presidential candidate in Bungoma County.

Mizani further noted that Trans Nzoia has been viewed as a battleground for Raila and Ruto, with reports claiming that the two politicians have a 50-50 popularity split.

The major question is whether Raila Odinga can maintain his advantage in Western Kenya, despite the fact that several leaders in the region are attempting to calm him down by handing over 70 percent of luhya votes to Ruto.
