As election campaigns come to an end, all the four presidential candidates in the 2022 elections hosted f their last grand rallies as they attempt to woo the hearts of the electorate to their side.

With only two days to the polls, Azimio la Umoja One Kenya presidential candidate Raila Odinga and his main adversary Deputy President William Ruto who are both perceived as the leading contenders in the race to State House staged their rallies in the country’s capital.

The Azimio chief hosted his mega rally at Moi International Sports Centre in Kasarani while DP Ruto who is running on a Kenya Kwanza ticket rallyied his supporters in an eventual gathering at the historic Nyayo Stadium.

The other two candidates, Roots Party flag bearer Prof. George Wajackoyah and Agano’s David Mwaure who have been perceived as the underdogs in the 2022 contest pitched their last campaigns around the City.

Shortly after Raila and Ruto concluded their rallies, the IEBC led by Wafula Chebulati has made a big announcement by publishing a notice signalling the end of all campaigns ahead of the upcoming election slated for Tuesday next week.

“Today 6th August 2022 at 6pm marks the end of the campaign period. Candidates and any political parties should desist from engaging in any acts of political campaigns outside this period as this would amount to breach of the Electoral Code of Conduct.”

According to the Wafula Chebukati- led commission, politicians should now prepare themselves for the general election on Tuesday.

Presidential candidates Deputy President William Ruto and his competitor Raila Odinga on Saturday made their final submissions at the Nyayo and Kasarani Stadia respectively in a last ditch effort to woo voters.

The frontrunners in the presidential election vowed to revive the country’s troubled economy.

Ruto and Odinga, a veteran opposition leader now backed by the ruling party, are fighting for the chance to lead the East African powerhouse as it grapples with a cost-of-living crisis.

Previous polls have been marred by violence — including inter-ethnic clashes — and continue to cast a dark shadow over the country, where 22.1 million voters will now choose the next president, as well as senators, governors, lawmakers, woman representatives and county officials.

The battle for votes has been dominated by mud-slinging, tit-for-tat claims of rigging and a freebie bonanza for supporters, who have been showered with umbrellas, groceries and cash for attending rallies.

After months of frenetic campaigning across the vast country, the two candidates staged their final offensive in the capital Nairobi, addressing thousands of flag-waving supporters.
