Uhuru not as popular as poll says, CORD squeaks

17 April 2015, 17:21 William Korir

Nairobi - The CORD coalition has hit back at a report that president Uhuru Kenyatta's overall popularity stands at 66%.

An Ipsos Synovate poll released Thursday evening stated that Uhuru is still the most popular presidential candidate with 66% of the overall cake, and that 52% of Kenyans would vote him back into power.

CORD leader Raila Odinga is apparently stuck at 28% of the cake, with the other key players such as Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka, Ford Kenya's Moses Wetangula and DP William Ruto all on negligible numbers.

The opposition in a press conference Friday complained that the poll was doctored to put the current regime in a better position than it is in actual terms and that it was a cheap Public Relations stunt.

" This latest so-called opinion survey was hurriedly commissioned to divert the public’s attention from a myriad of pressing national problems ranging from run-away insecurity in the country and the entrenched corruption in high places among others," the press statement signed by Opiyo Wandayi, MP and Secretary for Political Affairs, ODM read.

Wandayi insisted that there was no way the president could be compared to any candidate at the moment since there was none who had declared interest in the presidency.

He also termed the timing of the announcement, which comes at a time when the country has been struggling with matters insecurity as perfect for the current regime in its plight to divert attention from the real issues affecting Kenyans.
