TALK OF THE DAY: Who will be named the next head of State?

By Several Authors | August 7th 2017

With just hours to go before the most-awaited presidential polls, the big question lingers - who will be at the helm of Kenya and what are the key determinants of the choice made? Is this election going to prove what experts say, that Kenyans do not vote on issues but by tribe? Kenya's political dynamics are too tricky for pollsters to give accurate predictions. Tomorrow's vote will decide the leadership matrix. Elections belong to the 45 million Kenyans and it is the decision of the 19 million registered voters that will show they want to take Kenya for the next five years. If they decide to turn their back on the fire and burn their behinds, then they will have to sit on their blisters. The future of our country is in our hands. Orina Onuonga, Kisii


The election campaigns have to come to an end and IEBC has assured us of credible elections. But although the commission has assured us of peaceful elections, NASA has expressed fears of the elections being rigged by Jubilee, who have been frantically campaigning for a second term in office. I strongly believe the elections conducted by Wafula Chebukati's team will be credible and no one among the main political contenders will interfere with them. NASA and Jubilee should maintain sobriety and avoid calling for mass action. Both sides should accept the outcome of the polls; losing the votes does not mean death to the loser. Mohamed A. Sheikh, Eastleigh

Imagine yourself as a footballer. You have been awarded a penalty, it's now past 90 minutes and the end of extra time is milliseconds away. The scoreline is clear, the cheering crowds are now quiet, praying waiting for the last five years. Tomorrow, you have only one chance at the scoreline! Joseph Musyoki, Kitengela.
