OPINION POLL: Ndiege ahead of Masara with 52.9% approval in two horse Suna West MP race

The Poll Grab:

By MN Reporter

Immediate former Suna West MP Joseph Ndiege is likely to retain his seat and send home the incumbent Peter Masara if elections are to be held today.

Ndiege, who will be in the August 9 polls on an Independent ticket will garner 52.9% of the votes in a two horse race against Masara, an ODM candidate who has 45.1% of votes, a pollster has said.

Mizani Africa, the pollster said only 2% of voters in the constituency are undecided.

This results will likely send political shock waves in the constituency after heated ODM primaries which were marred by violence, vote rigging claims following heated campaigns by both sides.

Out of Migori eight constituencies, ODM offered direct tickets in all of them and only took Suna West for voting as an opinion poll done by the party showed Masara was leading with a small margin of less than 5%.

This poll will be a big boost to Ndiege and his supporters who have taken a more people oriented campaign against Masara.

In last polls, Masara on an Independent ticket won by about 1,030 votes against Ndiege who was the ODM candidate.
