Uhuru's Only MP In Meru County Shown Dust In Latest Opinion Poll, Grounds Turns Slippery

The latest opinion poll from Mizani Africa shows that the only Uhuru's allied MP is facing a moment of truth in matters his retaining his seat. Maoka Maore has remained loyal to Uhuru Kenyatta even as other members of parliament from Meru County joined Tangatanga to campaign with the deputy President William Ruto. Maoka Maore had a support of 16 percent against UDA Candidate Julius Taitumu who has a support of 38.2 percent.

Maoka Maore is the only incumbent member of parliament who has remained loyal to Uhuru Kenyatta in Meru County. It's however clear, he is paying dearly for going against the UDA wave which is very strong especially in matters around the politics of Meru County.

The deputy President William Ruto has heightened his campaigns especially against members of Azimio-OKA in Meru County and the entire Mt Kenya. The chances of Azimio team winning a seat in Meru is badly dwindling given the latest poll.

Most members of jubilee party expected Uhuru Kenyatta to go and campaign for their re-election but it's evident Uhuru Kenyatta has refused to campaign for jubilee candidates in Mt Kenya region. Whether Azimio will succeed given how jubilee is performing poorly in Meru County, let's wait and see.
