It would be a neck-and-neck race for Evans Kidero and Senator Mike Sonko for the Nairobi gubernatorial race if elections were held today, a newly released poll shows.

Former Gatanga Member of Parliament Peter Kenneth comes third with 4 percent while Miguna Miguna has 1 percent. 8 percent are still undecided.
In the Nairobi senatorial race, Jubilee Party’s Johnson Sakaja enjoys 39 per cent support compared to ODM’s Edwin Sifuna at 28 per cent.
Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) candidate for Women Representative seat Esther Passaris would defeat Jubilee’s incumbent Rachael Shebesh, garnering 57 per cent approval to Shebesh’s 25 per cent.
The survey shows that support for the National Super Alliance (NASA) has been on the rise in Nairobi since last year July, rising from 38 per cent to 47 per cent in February this year to currently stand at 56 per cent.
Jubilee Party support in the county is currently at 34 per cent, the poll says.
