Opinion polls conducted by Mizani Africa research organization have revealed that United Democratic Alliance (UDA) gubernatorial, senatorial and Women Representative aspirants are the most popular in Narok county.
According to the polls which were done recently by the organization through a telephone interview, majority of the sampled respondents noted that they preferred former Labour Chief Administrative Secretary Patrick Ole Ntutu as their next governor to other hopefuls for the same seat such as Narok North Member of Parliament Moitalel Ole Kenya. 59.8% said they would vote for Ntutu, 30.7% would elect Ole Kenta and 4.7% vowed to support Charles Sunkuli.
In senatorial contest, the incumbent governor Samuel Ole Tunai, the latest entrant into the race was the most popular candidate with 44.9%, followed by the current senator Ledama Ole Kina at 35.4% and Kilgoris MP Gideon Konchella would emerge third with 8.7%. Other candidates who were included in the interview questions garnered below 6% support each.
Rebecca Tonkei led in the Women MP race with 36.6%. Jane Nampaso had 19.0 while the late veteran politician William Ole Ntimama's daughter Lydia Ntimama got 15.6%.
This is good news to deputy president Dr William Ruto because it implies that his efforts to consolidate his Maa-Rift Valley vote-base have come to fruition. If the entire team wins the respective seats, together with those of the MCAs, his chances of getting majority of votes for his presidential bid will be leveraged.
This comes as the DP struggles to protect the region from being wrestled from him by his arch-rival Raila Odinga.
