2022 rigging program? Miguna opens lead on why IPSOS fired Tom Wolf

Exiled firebrand Lawyer Dr Miguna Miguna has said that the France based research Company IPSOS synovate fired its lead researcher in Kenya Tom Wolf as part of the 2022 polls rigging program.

Speaking through his twitter account, Miguna Miguna said France had just shifted its autocratic focus from Congo to Kenya.

He claims that France used OT-Morpho to steal the 2017 elections and imposed President Uhuru Kenyatta to Kenyans.

According to Miguna Miguna, France has fired Tom Wolf and stopped IPSOS synovate from conducting “political polls” as part of the 2022 rigging program

While making his quiting announcement on Monday, Wolf disclosed that Ipsos in France decided that its Kenyan subsidiary, Ipsos-Kenya, should not include “political” survey results in its public releases “for the foreseeable future”.

The research firm has not released any polling results since September last year.

“As far as I know, there has been no Kenya Government interference which has led to this decision. However, on the basis of this decision, it was judged that my position as research analyst had become redundant,” Wolf said in a statement to newsrooms.

He went on, “I was therefore given notice, which took effect on 31st March this year. I am thus no longer associated with Ipsos.”

Ipsos came under fire in the lead up to the 2017 presidential poll with ODM leaders accusing the firm of skewing the survey in favour of President Uhuru Kenyatta.

“I have no intention of leaving Kenya, I will be exploring other opportunities here, where my knowledge and skills can contribute to the country’s development,” he stated.

“I am grateful for this opportunity, given that these scientifically designed and implemented surveys have revealed the awareness, perceptions and aspirations held by Kenyans regarding many critical issues.”

He said the surveys have contributed to the expansion of the democratic space by providing citizens the opportunity to make their voices heard on a regular basis.

“I am extremely grateful for the support I have received from countless Kenyans of all walks of life over these years,” Wolf said.
