Joho, Kabogo, Mutua remain top in gubernatorial race – Poll
Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho, his Kiambu counterpart William Kabogo and Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua remain the most preferred leaders if the polls were held today.
According to the latest opinion poll by research firm TIFA, if the elections were held today Joho would emerge the winner with 68 per cent followed by Jubilee’s Suleiman Shabaal with 15 per cent and wiper’s Hassan Omar comes in a distant 3rd at 7 per cent.
Addressing the press on Tuesday morning, TIFA CEO Maggy Ireri said that in Machakos County, Governor Alfred Mutua would retain his seat if elections were held today with Chama cha Mwananchi’s candidate Wavinya Ndeti coming second with 8 per cent.
However, Mutua’s support has declined compared to last year.
In Kiambu County the incumbent William Kabogo is the most preferred leader with 46 per cent followed Kabete MP Ferdinand Waititu with 32 per cent.
The research was conducted in Machakos, Kiambu and Mombasa Counties between 16th and 18th of this month.
The latest poll by TIFA research has placed the three governors ahead of their rivals with only 139 days to go to the August 8th General Election.
