Nguu-Masumba ward seat fell vacant after the death of Harris Ngui, the former MCA in a road accident at Salama on the Nairobi-Mombasa highway and now the by-election is scheduled for 14 October.
Ahead of the tomorrow’s by-election in Kibwezi West Constituency, Makueni County, Eshio Mwaiwa of the Wiper party is seen as the main contender alongside Daniel Musau of United Democratic Alliance that is associated with Deputy President William Ruto.
However a third candidate, Timothy Maneno (Independent) is also one of the top contender despite having no big party on his name.
Maneno is supported by Governor Kivutha and Mr Mutuse while the UDA candidate enjoys support of former Machakos senator Johnston Muthama who is UDA’s national chairman with Mwaiwa enjoying support from the OKA team.
Now with most of the people eagerly waiting for the by-election and final results, an opinion poll has been displayed by Eastern region local news outlet Kambaland.
As per the opinion poll by Kambaland which has elicited mixed reactions among Kenyans, Timothy Maneno (independent candidate) has 58% with Daniel K. Masila of UDA coming closely with 23% while wiper candidate Eshio Mwaiwa has 18% and only 1% is undecided.
