Poll: Meru, Kajiado, Kisii governors to reclaim seats

If elections were to be held today, incumbent governors of Meru, Kajiado and Kisii counties would be elected for the second term. This is according to the latest popularity survey by Infotrack.

The survey also indicates that women representative hopefuls allied to Jubilee Party in the three counties are on the road to trouncing their opponents in the forthcoming polls.

Meru governor Peter Munya of PNU, Kisii’s James Ongwae of ODM and David Nkedianye also of ODM would be re-elected if elections were to be held today.

Ongwae would beat his close challenger Christopher Obure with 60.1% to 16.9%. Former cabinet secretary Joseph Ole Lenku is trailing incumbent Nkedianye who scored 52.7% at 41%, according to the latest survey by pollster Infotrack.

However, it would be a battle of titans in Meru County between incumbent Peter Munya and Senator Kiraitu Murungu with a paltry 1.3% difference.

All eyes are set on the undecided voters that constitute 6.8% of the 702,000 registered voters in Meru. On the senatorial race, Mithika Linturi of Jubilee is the most preferred candidate in Meru at 54% with his close rival Imanyara Mugambi of PNU trailing at 20.6%.

Tinaayai Koilel would be elected Kajiado senator at 58.1% with Mpayei Philip coming in second at 32.7%. Kisii County is gearing for a neck-to-neck race between former cabinet minister professor Sam Ongeri of ODM and Charles Nyachae of Jubilee with 3.8% difference.

Jubilee women representative candidates in the 3 counties would emerge outright winners.

However, in Meru both incumbent Florence Kajuju of Jubilee and her independent challenger Kawira Mwangaza have to work hard for a better  share of the undecided 9.7% of total voters to clinch the seat  after the  two rivals registered a mere 3.4% difference.

The survey was conducted between 30th, of June and July 10th with a sample size of 1,350 respondents in Meru and Kisii counties and 750 respondents in Kajiado.
