News Hub Creator

Mizani Africa has been one of the busiest pollsters over this campaign period. The company has majored on the Presidential race, the three county races and the Parliamentary Seat races. All these in a bid to try predict who among the many aspirants in different races stand bigger chances of winning the 2022 August polls. The gubernatorial races across the country have turned into more of a coalition race than a party race, with each Coalition backing one candidate for a gubernatorial seat. Except for a few Counties where aspirants from different Parties belonging to same Coalition have failed to reach a consensus on whom to back. However, the race in many Counties has turned into majorly a Kenya Kwanza Vs Azimio la Umoja races.
