With five days to go before the elections, the polls of the companies specialised in surveying voting intentions have closed. For three out of four of the most important of them, Raila Odinga, the opposition leader who has the support of outgoing President Uhuru Kenyatta, will win.
In addition to Ipsos and Tifa Polls that we have reported on in recent days, Infotrak, having interviewed a sample of Kenyans from all counties and walks of life, also reports Odinga ahead and for the first time even puts him close to victory in the first round.
This does not demoralise rival William Ruto and his rivals, who are confident of overturning the odds, with the support of the rural areas and especially the turnaround of the populous Kikuyu counties in the foothills of Mount Kenya, which have never looked favourably on Odinga and, according to the Rutians, have made good on the ally Kenyatta whose supporters they have always been.
What is of interest to Kenya's economy and the tourism sector, however, is that these elections are peaceful and that they are resolved, if possible, without going to a runoff.
But this and more is what editor Freddie del Curatolo talks to us about in his 11th instalment of Kenya's lead-up to the 2022 elections.
