Initially there were two candidates that were contesting for the seat that was left vacant following the death of Susan Wakape's husband. Susan Wakape is among them representing the Jubilee party and Moses Kuria's People's Empowerment Party represented by George Khoimburi.

It will not be an easy test for them following the introduction of an independent candidate in the parliamentary race. The name of the independent candidate is Doctor Joseph Gichui. He will now face the two.

William Ruto's United Democratic Alliance (UDA) did not field and candidate in the Juba by-election claiming that they were paying respect to the death of the former Member of Parliament.
