Finally IEBC Declares the Winner Between Gladys Wanga and Kidero in Homabay Governor Race

Homabay governor race was among those that were being followed closely by Kenyans.

The race was tight between the former Nairobi governor Evans Kidero and outgoing Women representative Gladys Wanga

The Independent Electrol and Boundaries Commission has eventually announced Gladys Wanga as the newly elected Homabay governor

She becomes the first woman governor in the entire Nyanza region after beating the Independent candidate Evans Kidero.

She garnered 245,559 votes while Kidero only managed 151,182 votes.

Earlier, Chebukati had warned the two against causing tension that could lead to chaos among their followers in Homabay.

Wanga was given a direct ticket by the ODM party, something that saw Evans Kidero revolting against Mr. Odinga and chose to be independent.

Many ODM allied politicians from the county backed Wanga and gave her hope plus support and she was also endorsed by the former prime minister Raila Odinga.

Various earlier rumors on social media alleged that Kidero had won by IEBC is the final say.

This is history, Gladys Wanga it is! What's your view on this?
