Forget InfoTrak, TIFA Polls, Here’s An Alleged NIS Survey On Presidential Election

With about 2 weeks to the general election, pollsters predict that Azimio flagbearer Raila Odinga is ahead of his Kenya Kwanza competitor Deputy President William Ruto by a narrow margin.

A poll conducted by InfoTrac, whose results were released on 13 July, shows Raila ahead with 43%, followed by Ruto at 37%.

Results released on 4 July by TIFA Research show that the Azimio candidate is leading with about 42% compared to Ruto’s 39%.

However, Kiharu MP Ndindi Nyoro now claims that a poll conducted recently by the National Intelligence Service (NIS) indicates that the UDA candidate would defeat Raila who is vying for the fifth time.

In a long Facebook post on Friday night, the legislator said the NIS poll has left the State House on a panic mood and was now planning to sabotage the election set for August 9.

“After the NIS polls were shared indicating H.E William Ruto is winning 1st round, the usual charlatans are now helter-skelter,” Nyoro said.

The UDA MP made the remarks while commenting on a press statement from the IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati saying that police are in possession of the key electronic items belonging to the 3 foreign nationals arrested on Thursday.

He further claimed the 3 personnel, who are employees of Smartmatic International B.V., were compelled to give passwords to the confiscated phones and gadgets.

However, Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti has dismissed Chebukati’s statement saying it “is not only inaccurate but also misleading to the public and should be treated with the contempt it deserves.”
