According to the Latest Opinion Poll Results by Mizani Africa Siaya County Gubernatorial contest is a two horse race between UDM Candidate Eng. Nicholas Gumbo and incumbent Senator James Orengo of ODM Party.
Senator James Orengo will have to up his politics if he must beat Hon. Nicolas Gumba in the Siaya Gubernatorial race come August 9 Polls.
Hon Nicolas Gumba is leading him with a huge 6% ahead of this year’s general elections. Senator James Orengo has been Raila Odinga’s man, but it seems like Raila Odinga’s Popularity might not save him this time around.
Gumbo, a former Rarieda Mp, is largely seen as Governor Cornel Rasanga’s successor in the upcoming elections, based on his developmental record, which has yet to be matched in the Rarieda constituency.
His growth record as Mp for Rarieda prompted voters to encourage him to run for the top county seat in 2017, which he gladly accepted and ran for as an independent candidate after losing in the ODM primaries.
It’s now a matter of wait and see what happens in the coming months if Senator James Orengo will turn the table around or not.
Mizani Africa tweet was; “It is a highly contentious race at the gubernatorial ranking where UDM’s former Rarieda MP Nicolas Gumbo is commanding the highest ranking with 46.1% while ODM’s Senator James Orengo comes second place with 44.7% giving a margin of only 1.4%.
