The by-election in Bungoma will see Kenya Kwanza parties compete against themselves. It's also expected that the Azimio coalition will field a candidate to face off with Kenya Kwanza allies.
The Bungoma Senator who is also the Ford Kenya party leader is expected to rally the residents of Bungoma to elect his candidate. The president of Kenya William Ruto is also expected to rally Bungoma county to support a Kenya Kwanza candidate.
Whether Azimio will manage to win the Bungoma seat against Kenya Kwanza, let's wait and see. The obvious reality remains that indeed, Kenya Kwanza has higher chances of winning the seat for Wetangula is a very senior leader in the Kenya Kwanza lineup and he also comes from Bungoma county.
