Agano Party Deputy Presidential candidate Ruth Mucheru Mutua has dismissed the recent opinion polls conducted ahead of the August 9th General Election claiming the companies behind the political surveys are compromised.

Speaking during the Deputy Presidential Debate held at the Catholic University of East Africa on Tuesday, Mrs. Mutua alleged that the Research Institutions are sponsored to influence the results, adding that the polls were not the actual representation of Kenyan opinions.

Mrs. Mutua, who is David Waihiga Mwaure’s running mate, further asserted that the polls were hiding their (Agano Party's) score to show their limited influence countrywide, in a bid to disadvantage them come August 9th.

 “The research institutes are refusing to give us even our own mark... In school, even the student who has zero gets their own paper and scorecard,’ she said.

“But now, the research institutes which have been sponsored, they remove even the one student, which I seriously think they are reducing our numbers, probably we could be a threat because Kenyans are tired... they want new leadership.”

Mrs Mutua went on to argue that the opinion polls by TIFA and Infotrak which have in the past weeks ranked her boss below the one-percent mark were being influenced to understate the Agano presidential candidate’s popularity in the country, insisting that Waihiga had the numbers.

“We have the numbers, Waihiga Mwaure said that some of these research institutes have been sponsored. What they are doing to us as Kenyans is reverse psychology,” she said.

While exuding confidence that her party would be triumphant in the August polls, she added: “They are trying to say that the tyranny of numbers has an upper hand lakini nataka kueleza kuna mabadiliko, na Agano iko site, watu wakate simu.”

In the latest opinion polls by TIFA and Infotrak, Azimio flagbearer Raila Odinga was ranked the most popular with over 40 per cent while her party leader Mwaure was the least with 0.1 per cent.
