BY KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,27TH MARCH 2018-Results of a new survey carried out by research firm IPSOS shows that 30 per cent of Kenyans believe Deputy President William Ruto is likely to become a President.
The survey that involved over 3,500 people interviewed across all regions in the country rates both Baringo Senator Gideon Moi and Mombasa Governor Ali Joho at a distant 14 pc.
The survey released on Tuesday surprisingly shows National Super Alliance leader Raila Odinga is also rated at 14 pc, under the category of Kenyans who are certain he will occupy the top office in the country at some point.
His co-principal within the coalition Musalia Mudavadi, whose current status is shaky, has 8 c of Kenyans backing him, while Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka, and Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua have 6pc rating.
The survey does not, however, expound why the politicians rated that way.
Joho was also seen as an immediate heir of Odinga’s political constituency, but the Opposition chief is yet to announce whether he will try his luck again in 2022, when his political rival, President Uhuru Kenyatta exits the stage.
