The 2022 race to succeed President Kenyatta who is soon exiting the office in August upon the completion of his two-terms is already at its peak as the political bigwigs are seen roaming across the streets campaigning hunting votes to inherit the top seat.
Among those leaders salivating for the top seat, the Azimio La Umoja-One Kenya Alliance flag bearer Honorable Raila Amollo Odinga and his counterpart the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party leader honorable William Samoei Ruto appear to be the frontrunners.
This is due to the fact that they have made inroads for their political parties in many parts of the country Kenya making them more popular than other presidential candidates who are also eyeing for the top seat.
Due to the celebrities of these two giant presidential contenders, the next government that will take over from President Kenyatta's regime might be either Odinga's Azimio La Umoja-One Kenya Alliance or Ruto's Kenya Kwanza Alliance camp.
Since the nomination of the running mates by all the presidential candidates, many opinion polls had been conducted giving different results. Some of the opinion polls had been putting the ODM party leader Mr Odinga at the top while some had been ranking Ruto top.
According to the latest opinion poll by the Mizani Africa, if elections were to be held today in Kenya, Odinga's Azimio La Umoja-One Kenya would have emerged second after Ruto's Kenya Kwanza Alliance.
This opinion poll placed Ruto in the top position with 49 2% of the total votes cast. Odinga came second with 45.1% of the total votes cast and Kalonzo followed by 2.9% of total votes cast.
