Madam, inaonekana hiyo msokoto yako ni kali na kubwa sana, inyonge mara moja tafadhali au ita kuumiza akili.
Last registered number of voters WAS NOT 5 million but 14.2 million. 40% of that is 5.68m which is well within Uhuru's reach considering how hard he has worked and the spectacular and steady progress he is making. Right now, Uhuru and TNA's performance is on everybody's lips. 40% is very possible. You are not even counting his votes from Embu, Meru and Nairobi in addition to Central and Central Rift, and those are just votes from his base alone. He will definitely get votes all across the country including Luo Nyanza. Consider for example that all the candidates who came second in the recent civic elections in Luo Nyanza were on TNA tickets, and even if they got only 15 - 20% of the cast votes, those are still votes in Uhuru's basket. If he can get that in a hostile region like Luo Nyanza of all places, what can he not get in other less hostile places like Kisii, NEP and Coast? You underestimate Uhuru at your peril.

When you talk of 40%,in absolute numbers,its 5 million of the registered population.Now can you go ahead and break the 5 million by tribe then we see where Uhuru is getting the 40% in the first round.Central as a whole has 1.9 registered,RV has 0.6 registered kikuyus,where are the other 2.5 million coming from??????
Dont just use numbers for the sake of it.
