President Ruto urged not to field UDA candidate in Bungoma Senatorial race

  • Majimbo said the party had endorsed David Wafula Wakoli to contest for the seat that was left vacant after Moses Wetangula was elected as National Assembly Speaker.

Kabuchai Member of Parliament Majimbo Kalasinga has urged United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party leader President William Ruto not to field a candidate in the upcoming Senatorial by-elections in Bungoma County.  

 

Speaking in Kabuchai after meeting FORD-Kenya officials, Majimbo said the party had endorsed David Wafula Wakoli to contest for the seat that was left vacant after Moses Wetangula was elected as National Assembly Speaker.

 

The MP said those fronting former Bumula MP Mwambu Mabonga as UDA party candidate for the senatorial seat are brokers who are after his money.

 

The leaders present called on the residents of Bungoma county to vote for Wakoli as a youthful and energized leader.

 

The Bungoma Senatorial seat fell vacant after Wetangula, who was under FORD-Kenya ticket was elected National Assembly Speaker.


Both FORD-Kenya and UDA parties are under the Kenya Kwanza Coalition, the umbrella that formed President Ruto's government. 

 

On October 6, the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) announced that the Bungoma by-elections will be held on December 8.

 

Five other by-elections will take place that day including; Ololmasani, Kyome/Thaana, Utawala, Mumias North and South Gem Wards in Narok, Kitui, Nairobi City, Kakamega, and Siaya County Assemblies respectively.
