Nominated Senator Millicent Omanga has been hit by the fury of a section of netizens after her comment on an opinion poll on the presidential elections ahead of August.

According to an opinion poll by Trends & Insights for Africa (Tifa) released on Tuesday, May 3, Azimio presidential candidate Raila Odinga was the most preferred candidate in Nairobi, Makueni, and Mombasa counties.

Senator Omanga took to her official account to seemingly react to the poll saying that some polls were tailored to achieve a certain narrative.

“Opinion polls tailored to achieve a certain narrative. Ground ndio kusema. DP @WilliamsRuto has the people, and that’s what matters,” she tweeted.

However, her tweet did not go down well with some netizens who went for her neck over her remarks that suggested that she was not agreeing with the results of the poll.

According to a section of netizens, they wondered why the senator did not complain when previous polls showed Ruto was leading in the presidential race.

They said that Omanga was in celebration mode when Ruto was leading in the polls and now when Raila was leading, she was crying foul over the polls being tailored.

Meanwhile, the latest opinion poll TIFA ranked Nairobi Senator Johnson Sakaja as the most preferred governor for Nairobi.

Sakaja leads with 23 per cent in the governor race for Nairobi, according to a poll by TIFA released on Tuesday, May 3.

Polycarp Igathe is the second at 15 per cent, Richard Ngatia at 3 per cent, Anne Kananu at1 per cent, Agnes Kagure at 1 per cent. However, 53 per cent of Nairobi residents are still undecided.

In Makueni County, Mutula Kilonzo Jnr leads with 50 per cent, Patrick Musimba is second with 5 per cent, Rose Moseo came third at 3 per cent.

In Mombasa, the most preferred candidate for the governor seat is Abulswamad Nassir at 40 per cent followed by former Nairobi governor Mike Sonko at 28 per cent, Hassan Omar (9 per cent), William Kingi (1 per cent).

ODM secretary general Edwin Sifuna leads in the Senatorial race for Nairobi city with 19 per cent followed by Bishop Margaret Wanjiru who has 6 per cent. The third is Maina Kamanda with 1 per cent.

Azimio la Umoja had settled on ODM Secretary-General Edwin Sifuna as its Senate candidate in Nairobi while Kenya Kwanza picked Bishop Margaret Wanjiru. She was initially in the race but stepped down in favour of Sakaja.
