In the 11th Parliament, Kabondo Kasipul MP Silvance Osele was the youngest legislator in the country. At only 26 years when he was elected during the 2013 general election.
At the beginning, Osele was seen as among the new generation of leaders that the region desperately needed. But fast forward, Osele finds himself in an awkward position. As it stands, his fate in Kabondo Kasipul politics is at the mercy of the voters who voted him out in 2017.
Accused alongside others of allegedly trying to undermine ODM leader Raila Odinga in Nyanza region, Osele faced it rough in 2017 when Eve Obara had an easy ride in the Kabondo Kasipul MP race.

Left at risk of fading into political oblivion, President Uhuru Kenyatta came to his rescue in 2018 when he was appointed as director at the Presidential Delivery Unit.
But just recently, amid massive resignations in the civil service, Osele is among those who resigned to make a plunge into politics.
Already a member of the United Green Movement party where he serves as director of elections, Osele is determined to recapture the Kabondo Kasipul seat by sending home Obara.
With his past relationship with ODM leadership most likely going to haunt him, Osele will find the going tough considering that he will be riding against the dominant orange party wave in the region.
Will this former youngest MP defy all the odds to make a grand return to Parliament? Well, time will tell.
