Huge Boost For Azimio La Umoja As The Latest Opinion Poll Puts Odinga Ahead.

It is now less than nine months to the next general elections where Kenyans are expecting to get the fifth president. The political bigwigs are already campaigning hunting for votes across the country ahead of the polls.

At the moment, the ODM party leader Raila Amollo Odinga and Deputy President William Samoei Ruto appear to be the top contenders for the forthcoming presidency race. This is due to the fact that they have made inroads for their political parties in many parts of the country Kenya.

Other presidential aspirants who are also campaigning eyeing for the presidency seat are: the ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi, KANU party leader Gideon Moi, Wiper Democratic party leader Kalonzo Musyoka, Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetangula and the Speaker of the National Assembly Justine Muturi.

Since President Kenyatta and Odinga shook hands in March 2018 formally known as handshake, Kenyatta have been seen in many occasions advocating for Odinga's presidency race. This has also helped Odinga to gain some support from the Mount Kenya region, Kenyatta's backyard which have never been experienced in the past elections.

From the look of things, both Honorable Odinga and DP Ruto are likely to have their running mates from the Mountain region.

There have been many opinion polls that have been contacted concerning the 2022 presidential race. Most of these polls have been placing DP Ruto ahead of Odinga. But according to the latest opinion poll that was conducted by the Radio Africa, it was a big boost for the Azimio La Umoja as the ODM party leader was placed ahead.

According to the Radio Africa opinion poll, if elections were to be carried today, Odinga would have won in the first round with 55% of total votes cast. DP Ruto would have emerged the runner's up with 39% of the total votes cast. Then Musalia and Kalonzo would have ganged 4% and 2% respectively.
