Azimio Allied Politician Takes A Swipe At Polling Company Despite Leading, Cites Rigging Plot


A ploitician allied to ODM and Azimio La Umoja One Kenya Alliance has taken a strong swipe at Mizani Africa Reserach Company over claims of being biased in delivery of their results.

According to results released today by Mizani Africa, Suba North member of Parliament Millie Grace Odhiambo would emerge winner if elections were held today. He would gunner 47.1% of the sampled respondents against her closest rival Akali James Agembe's 39.2%

However in a turn of events, the vocal ODM legislature has rejected the results as unrealistic and that they do not show a true reflection on the ground.

'Even though these polls show me as leading with an 8% margin even after only campaigning for 4 days in 1 out of 4 wards, I want to state categorically that they are fake polls. Another poll by a more official agency puts me at 70%.' Millie Odhiambo wrote on her Facebook page.

Millie alleges a meeting held yesterday to target her constituency and two others because they would prove stubborn if elected. According to her the first step to a successful rigging is to potray dwindling popularity ahead of the general elections.

'First step is to sponsor fake polls with margins reducing in the next few days. This facilitates any planned rigging. Shindwe kabisa kwa jina la Yesu.' the post read in part.
