His highest gain was in West Mugirango (23.4 per cent) and his lowest in Kitutu Chache South (13.2 per cent).

In Northern Kenya, Uhuru gained some 71 per cent from his 2013 support in North Horr with the Opposition chief lost 70 per cent.

But Raila made good gains in Western, gaining 53 per cent in Vihiga constituency and 70 per cent in Sabatia.

Uhuru’s 2013 score improved by between three per cent and 18 per cent.
