Jubilee party could have registered slightly more voters than Raila’s NASA strongholds. A closely monitored scrutiny indicates that despite this impression, the race is still a neck to neck affair if the battle grounds also register in large numbers.
IEBC statistics released on Tuesday indicate that 2,164,185 voters have registered countrywide in the first three weeks of month-long listing. Central and Rift Valley — Uhuru and Ruto’s political bedrocks — were the best performing.
Jubilee has 815,840. Although the difference appears insignificant, it means the two political behemoths could actually be neck and neck.
Central Kenya and Rift Valley are leading the votes drive with 66% and 60% respectively.
