Kenyans are waiting to see who will succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta in the 2022 general elections, which will be held in August. William Ruto and Raila Odinga are the two candidates. People’s perceptions of other leaders fighting for various seats have shifted as a result of their popularity.
As a result, there are some locations where if you are connected with a particular presidential candidate, you are more likely to win or lose elections. According to the latest opinion poll by Mizani Africa, Nyeri county, which appeared to be largely allied with William Ruto, is now turning into a battleground with Mr. Raila Odinga.
Kenya Kwanza candidates running on the UDA ticket are ahead against Azimio candidates running on the Jubilee ticket, according to a poll conducted in May and June in around six constituencies in Nyeri county.
In Mathira Constituency, Ruto’s running mate Rigathi Gachagua’s home turf, UDA candidate Erick Mwangi Wamumbi leads with 44.8 per cent of the vote, followed by Jubilee contender Phyllis Christabel Wambura with 28.1 per cent. Waruru Gikandi (13.7 per cent) and Nicholus Karweru (13.7 per cent) are among the other candidates (9.7 per cent).
Kanini Kega, a Jubilee candidate and passionate Raila Odinga supporter, leads the Kieni Constituency with 43.6 per cent. With 38.3 per cent, he is closely followed by UDA candidate Ebenezer Njoroge Wainaina. Wachira Keen, the third candidate, received 15.5 per cent.
Duncan Maina Mathenge of the United Democratic Party (UDA) is leading the race in the Nyeri town constituency with 45.4 percent of the vote. Ngunjinri Wambugu, a candidate for the Jubilee party, came in second with 38.7% of the polled sample.
Rahab Mukami, the women’s representative from Nyeri, was authorized by the IEBC today to run for the women’s representative seat on a UDA ticket.
Madam Rahab Mukami expressed gratitude to God for his blessings and to the lovely people of Nyeri County for their unwavering support.
On a Jubilee party ticket, Rahab Mukami won the women’s representative seat in the 2017 elections. Priscilla Nyokabi, the then-women representative, was defeated in her bid for reelection. On a Jubilee party ticket, Nyokabi is running for the Nyeri senate seat.
