Kiagu ward by-election will take place on December 16th after postponement by IEBC over Moses Kuria party concerns which ended to court. However it's clear the by-election is more of a two horse race between jubilee party and UDA.
It's clear most of the Meru leaders led by Senator Mithika Linturi have been at the forefront in support of UDA candidate. Most of the elected leaders in Meru County are also in the UDA caravan part of the reason jubilee might be humiliated badly come December 16th.
Another reason UDA might capture the seat is the fact that already they have a huge presence in the area unlike jubilee party which has lost all members including Kiraitu Murungi himself. The governor does not have a candidate in the by-election but it's clear he has unveiled his own Mbus party.
Going by this therefore it's clear Jubilee party does not have the local support in Kiagu Ward by-election. As we always say, politics is local and it's expected all local leaders who back UDA in Meru are many as opposed to those in support of jubilee.
