Mohammed has been declared winner after gathering 154,538 votes defeating other candidates on the same including ODM's Dennitah Ghati who gathered 117,957 votes. Other candidates who contested with her include; Jubilee's Lilian Otieno and independent candidates Josephine Sirega, Zilpha Ochuodho and Hellen Obado.

Mohammed was even captured weeping at some point at Migori Teachers' Training College after rigging allegations. She revealed that she even sold her luxurious house at Sh25 million to fund her political campaigns. Thus arguing that no body can stop her from representing Migori women.
