The candidates in Matungu are closely competing and those are mostly the ODM, ANC and the UDA one. Unlike in Msambweni, Matungu parliamentary seat is much more competitive than the Msambweni in the sence that it has many strong candidates. This means the votes to be cast will be divided and the one who will emerge the winner may be ahead by few votes.
This poll may not reflect the Msambweni since the Msambweni one was to be conducted alone and much efforts by politicians was concentrated, something which made many people to vome out and vote. Matungu these political restless have not been witnessed as it was in Msabweni where the contest was seen as being between the DP Ruto and ODM leader.
The Matungu one has come at a critical time when the BBI politics are hitting the ground and the 2022 campaigns coming earlier. Politicians especially those eyeing the top seat have started aligning themselves towards towards forming alliances to try and hit their targeted win.
