The race for the August elections is heating up, and Kenyans have less than two months to exercise their political rights. The ODM (One Kenya) coalition, led by former Prime Minister Raila Odinga, and the UDA Alliance, led by vice president William Samoei Ruto, are seen as the only two contenders for the presidency.

William Ruto, the UDA Alliance presidential candidate, and his running mate, Rigathi Gachagua, visited Kiambu and Narok counties today.

The region is seen as DP Ruto’s stronghold, with politicians such as Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria, former Kiambu Governor William Kabogo, and senator Kimani Wamatangi supporting him.

Ruto broke his silence when speaking to Kiambu people, citing to recent opinion polls and statistics that have shown Raila to be ahead of him.

The second in charge urged his supporters not to believe polls claiming that he will beat Odinga first thing in the morning and that UDA will form the next government.

According to the most recent opinion polls conducted by Mizani Africa and Infortrack, Raila Odinga, the former Prime Minister of Kenya, is dominating the presidential campaign with more than 45 percent of the vote, closely followed by William Ruto.

He went on to say that the polls are meaningless and urged Kiambu locals not to lose faith in him.
