Raila Odinga's Popularity In Mt Increases As Ruto's Popularity Drops By 7% In Latest Opinion Poll

The vote rich Mt Kenya region appears to be the centre of contention between the Kenya Kwanza alliance of deputy president William Ruto and the Azimio la umoja One Kenya coalition party presidential candidate Raila Odinga.

The two presidential candidates have both picked their running mates from the vote rich region with Ruto going for Mathira MP Hon Rigathi Gachagua while Raila Odinga has picked NARC Kenya party leader Martha Karua.

And now, the latest poll by Radio Africa Group that owns The Star newspaper indicates that deputy president William Ruto's popularity has gone down by a whooping 7% from 60% one month ago to 53% in the latest ratings.

This is in contrast with ODM party leader Raila Odinga whose popularity is on an upward trajectory as he has gained by 6% from 18% one month ago to 24% in the latest opinion poll by the Radio Africa Group.

The gain by Raila Odinga is believed to have been due to his decision to pick Martha Karua who hails from Mt Kenya region, a region that commands over 5Million votes.
