Yesterday, Thursday 18, the people of Machakos county made a decision on who will represent them in the Senate after the death of Senator Boniface Kabaka. The contest was between Wiper candidate, Agnes Kavindu, and UDA candidate, Urbanus Muthama.

Today, the IEBC declared Agnes as the Senator elect after she got over 109 thousand votes against Urbanus who only managed nineteen thousand votes. Kalonzo proved to be the de facto kingpin of the Ukambani region despite earlier rumours that DP Ruto had penetrated the region.

Baringo senator and KANU party leader, Gideon Moi, has come out to congratulate Kavindu on her landslide win. Gideon, being one of the leaders who went to Machakos and campaigned for Wiper, has gone ahead and associated this win with his party, KANU.

"Congratulations Hon. Agnes Kavindu. Your resounding victory is a reaffirmation of the belief that the people of Machakos have in you. KANU associates itself with your victory and assures you of its support as you discharge your legislative, oversight and representative mandate." Tweeted Gideon.

However, this message was not kindly received by all Kenyans as some descended on him with all types of criticism. Those who criticized him for the message argued that KANU did not have a candidate in Machakos and therefore he should not associate Kavindu's win with KANU.

Gideon have been battling with the deputy president William Ruto for the Rift Valley kingpin. Some people have been feeling like Gideon is a threat to Ruto's quest for presidency.

Below are screenshots showing how Kenyans reacted to Gideon's message;
