Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya presidential candidate Raila Odinga is leading in the presidential race by three points compared to his closest challenger William Ruto of the United Democratic Alliance (UDA), a new TIFA Research poll has shown.

According to the poll, Raila would win the election by 42 per cent compared to Ruto's 39 per cent if election was held today.

George Wajackoyah of Roots Party of Kenya garnered four per cent in the survey.

"The recent appearance and rise of one of the two other candidates Prof George Wajackoyah of the Roots Party of Kenya (now at 4%; David Mwaure of the Agano Party failed to illicit more than minuscule support in this survey) at least raises a possibility that neither Odinga nor Ruto will be able to secure an outright, first-round win," the research firm said.
