In the run-up to the general election, rival polling institutes and media outlets are churning out figures and predictions that are sometimes at odds with each other. These statistics are being scrutinised closely by the political parties to inform their campaign choices.
Outgoing Kenyan president Uhuru Kenyatta has rolled out access to his media empire to support his protégé Raila Odinga for president. His main opponent, deputy president William Ruto, is turning to social media as a result.
Kisumu, Kenya's third biggest city and the electoral base of presidential candidate Raila Odinga, is to receive financial support from the African Development Bank for its urban renovation plans. Meanwhile, Kisumu County is benefiting from a growing number of new development projects.
Despite having the support of the incumbent leader, presidential hopeful Raila Odinga is facing mistrust in the all-important central Kenya region, where his main rival William Ruto is proving to be much more popular.
The speaker of the national assembly abandoned the presidential camp and joined Ruto in April. He now wants nothing less than the deputy president's seat in return for playing a pivotal role in rallying the centre of the country.
Mombasa, East Africa's main commercial port, is faced with major disruption in the flow of goods from China and Russia. This affects the entire region and has become an issue in Kenya's presidential election.
The outgoing Kenyan president wants to influence the choice of Raila Odinga's running mate in upcoming elections, even if it means accentuating the tensions within their coalition. The decision must be taken before 28 April.
With the threat of another post-election crisis looming, the government is taking steps to secure the most volatile areas across the country where clashes between supporters of rival candidates could erupt.
The two main presidential candidates are counting on the backing of popular singers and celebrities to cement their popularity. Certain stars are not shy in asking for strategic positions in the future government in return.
Sidelined from the international top table for the past five years, the deputy head of state, who is running for president in August, is counting on his allies and a carefully picked team to maintain or establish dialogue with the leaders of neighbouring countries.
