All set for Bungoma by-election, says IEBC

27 May 2014, 15:55 Arap Yego

Bungoma - Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) in Webuye West Constituency, Bungoma County, has cleared three candidates to battle out for the Misikhu Ward seat which fell vacant following a successful election petition.

IEBC last Friday gave a green light to the immediate area member of County Assembly (MCA) Robert Mwembe (New Ford Kenya), Millie Masungo (Ford Kenya) and Haron Masinde (Orange Democratic Movement) to vie for the seat in the by-elections which will be held on June 23.

The court of appeal nullified the election of Mwembe on March 26, 2014 after Masungo successfully  challenged the validity of his election, citing massive irregularities in the March 4 general election.

The mini-polls has set the stage for the renewal of the bitter political long-standing supremacy battles  between Ford- Kenya Party of senator Moses Wetang’ula and the Eugene Wamalwa led New Ford Kenya.

Ford Kenya is expected to give its rival party, which enjoys perceived majority support in the constituency,  a run for their money.

Residents aver that Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang’ula, who has recently tried to stamp his authority in the county and western region, must go full throttle to have his candidate win for him to prove that he is the region's kingpin.

New Ford Kenya on the other hand is expected not to take the challenge from its bitter rival in its ‘home-turf’ lying down, as the party needs numbers in the Bungoma County Assembly.

“My rivals should know this is a New Ford Kenya zone and the people who elected me in March 4 will still do the same. The electorate who voted me in have not moved away from the ward,” Mwembe told journalists last week.
