Moments after opinion polls company TIFA revealed that the Azimio La Umoja-One Kenya presidential flag bearer Raila Odinga leads the presidential election race, the outgoing Machakos Governor Dr. Alfred Mutua has rubbished the results.
TIFA in the Monday’s report put Raila Odinga at 42%, ahead of Kenya Kwanza presidential candidate William Ruto at 39% possibility of being elected president in the August general election.
Alfred Mutua Full Statement On TIFA Opinion Polls
I am a believer of opinion polling. However, what we are witnessing is a campaign to create a perception that Raila Odinga is ahead so as to soften the ground to allow for rejection of the elections by Azimio and to force formation of a coalition Government.
Similar script to that used against President Mwai Kibaki. As Kenya Kwanza, we have three constant pollsters who conduct both daily, village and polling station based “dip” polls and weekly comprehensive polls.
We know from our data that we are ahead and anticipate to win the election at or neatly 60% of the vote. I therefore, find the current opinion polls meant to propel up Hon. Raila, not only INACCURATE, DOCTORED, laughable but a desperate attempt at swaying the public.
It is clear from the way Azimio team members are attacking the IEBC and complaining of the election process that they KNOW they are doing BADLY.
