Deputy President William Ruto’s claim that the UDA party currently has a 70% chance of victory has been disputed by constitutional expert Ahmednasir Abdullahi.The senior counsel chastised the UDA team, accusing them of misrepresenting their popularity, even as he conceded that political parties have a habit of radiating great confidence in their own power.
He did, however, give the Kenya Kwanza Alliance a decisive 60 percent of the vote.”Parties like to exaggerate their popularity. It is total propaganda to state that UDA is at 70 per cent. That is false. The more accurate figure according to a number of polls is btw 62 to 64 per cent…let us just be honest people!” he said.
Ahmednasir was responding to a video where the DP said the UDA party has formed a partnership with like-minded outfits to ensure they win by over 70 per cent of the votes cast in the August 9, elections.”We have organised ourselves into a strong team to get 70 per cent of the votes cast in the August 9, elections.
In the presidential election on August 9, 46.1 percent of registered voters say they would vote for Ruto, while 35.1 percent say they will vote for Raila, according to the poll.
