This is what Miguna had to say about the latest Infotrak poll as he likens himself to President Trump

According to the pollster, Miguna would get only 1 % of the Nairobi vote way behind incumbent Evans Kidero who would garner 35.3 % of the Nairobi electorate.

Nairobi gubernatorial aspirant Miguna Miguna.

According to the pollster, Miguna would get only 1 % of the Nairobi vote way behind incumbent Evans Kidero who would garner 35.3 % of the Nairobi electorate with Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko second with 23% followed closely by Peter Kenneth at 20.2%.

Others were Bishop Margret Wanjiru at 0.9 per cent, Esther Passaris with 0.7 per cent and Dogoretti South MP Denis Waweru at 0.6 per cent.

"Fake pollsters"

Miguna took to his official Twitter handle to rubbish the polls likening them to the run-up to the November 2016 elections in the USA where “fake pollsters” media and celebrity pundits gave President Donald Trump “-010% of winning”.

According to Miguna, “fake pollsters”, cartel media and half-baked pundits are desperately fighting him in the lead up to the 2017 Nairobi gubernatorial elections.

He said he was confident that the "silent majority" which won in the recent US, Nigerian, Gambian and Ghanaian elections will do the same in Nairobi come August and shame the “fake pollsters” and media.

He termed the timing of the release of the poll as a deliberate attempt to make Nairobians forget Sunday’s “meltdown” by his rival Senator Mike Sonko where he made unsavoury remarks about Peter Kenneth which brought uproar from Kenyans across both sides of the political divide.

Miguna said there strategy was to force a narrative of an imaginary contest between Kidero and the “self-confessed big thief” Sonko.
