NASA presidential candidate Raila Odinga has won almost all the undecided votes after he attended yesterday’s presidential debate. We can confirm, from comments on social media that every individual who claimed to be undecided before the debate now swears to vote for Raila.
In the debate, the former Prime Minister impressed Kenyans after he answered almost all the questions correctly and satisfactorily. Some of the key answers that added him more votes include; how he will tackle the issue of rent, unemployment and corruption.
Many of Uhuru’s supporters blame his advisors for misadvising him, terming them ignorant of what Kenyans want. By allowing the president to skip the debate, they made him lose thousands of undecided voters to Raila….and this is how he lost them. In 2013, before the presidential debate, few Kenyans knew Abduba Dida,but after he attended the debate, he became so popular that he defeated Martha Karua and Peter Kenneth in terms of total votes cast. It is this classical case that demonstrates how Uhuru lost a golden opportunity to add more votes into his vote basket. By ignoring the debate, Kenyans believed it was a show of arrogance lack of respect to voters.
With opinion poll results progressively tilting towards Raila, Uhuru will be forced to work extra hard to overturn the gains Raila might have made in yesterday’s debate.
