Major political parties are eyeing the vacant Bonchari parliamentary seat after Mp Oroo Oyioka passed away several weeks ago.

It has now emerged that ODM has picked Mr Oimeke, a graft suspect ,to fly the party's flag in Bonchari, a move that is set to ignite serious debate among Kenyans.

"ODM picks Parvel Oimeke , who resigned recently from EPRA amid a graft case, as its candidate in Bonchari by-election."

UDA, a party linked to Deputy president William Ruto picked the widow of the late Oroo Oyioka to run for the seat and try to succeed her husband.

It now seems the showdown will be between UDA and ODM, as the two political parties try to establish dominance in Kisii region ahead of the 2022 general election.

ODM has largely been dominant in the region but onslaughts from William Ruto are threatening the solid support base Mr Odinga enjoyed in Gusii.
