The leader of Kenya’s main opposition party,Raila Odinga has promised a decisive victory during Kenya’s election on August 8.

Speaking to Reuters after a rally in Nairobi,Odinga who is contesting the presidency for the third time after attempts in 2007 and 2013 expressed his confidence in a clear victory for his National Super Alliance (NASA).

"There is no other way that Jubilee can win elections other than through rigging and they know it - that is why they are making all the efforts, I'm very confident that we are going to get a very, very decisive victory.”

The declaration might have been considered an empty boast a few months back when Kenya’s economy was riding high and incumbent Uhuru Kenyatta was enjoying high popularity numbers but with five days to the election,that advantage has almost been wiped away,leaving in its wake an uncertainty.

There has not been a decisive winner in Kenya's elections for over a decade now.The polls in 2013 ended up in court while in 2007,there was violence after a vote that was won by less than 20,00 votes.

The stakes are high for both Kenyatta and Odinga. A loss for the incumbent will signify the end of his presidential life due to constitutional limits while at 72 years old, Odinga is also at his final attempt.
