Nominated Senator Judith Pareno has said her desire to become the next Kajiado senator is to protect the county resources from plunder.
Pareno said her role as a senator is to ensure that devolved money gets to the county in time and that the same is planned for to the last cent.
“We want our people to enjoy devolution by ensuring that hospitals and other services are provided to them in real-time,” said Pareno.
With days left to the general election, Nominated Senator Judith Pareno’s popularity has rocketed up by several digits ahead of the rest.
Pareno (ODM) made up big at 35.7 per cent in the latest Mizani Africa poll against her closest competitor, Moses Sakuda (Jubilee) who came in with 25.3 per cent.
The latest development, coming in days before the general election on August 9 is cousin heat among other candidates who find it an uphill to recover in less than 6 days.
If the Mizani Africa poll is anything to go by, the four other candidates will require anything more than a miracle to change or to break the tides.
Samuel Seki, who was second to Sakuda in the June poll managed 24.3 per cent in the latest release, while Gideon Toimasi got 8.2 per cent of the total votes. Simon ole Nkeri managed a paltry 4.0 per cent in the Mizani Africa popularity poll.
With the polls aside, it has emerged that ODM and UDA are the most popular parties in this coming election.
The only magic that can take place in the race for the senate is who among the top three governor contenders will win.
It has become a tradition that Kajiado’s voting pattern is determined by the popularity of the governor in the party.
For example; if governor Joseph Lenku will garner the most votes against the rest, the senate candidate is likely to get the same number of votes.
This will also happen if former governor David Nkedianye (Jubilee) will edge others. Sakuda will most likely win the race.
If Katoo ole Metito makes it as the next governor, Seki is most likely to make it too to the senate.
