Top Politicians Who Could Replace Wetang'ula As Bungoma Senator

Bungoma senatorial seat was declared vacant after their senator-elect Mr. Moses Wetang'ula resigned to contest for the national assembly speaker seat which he won. Many candidates have since then emerged to run for the highly coveted seat and it is promising to be a fierce fight between Kenya Kwanza in general and Ford Kenya as a party.

Here we take a keen glance at the politicians who are contesting and their likelihood of clinching victory.

1 Moses Mwambu Mabonga

He was formerly MP for Bumula constituency until 2022 where he lost to DAP-Kenya's Wanami Wamboka. He was defending his seat under UDA party and he has now joined in the senatorial race with a high chance of winning.

2 Wafula Wakoli

He is a former personal assistant to the national assembly speaker who is also the party leader of Ford Kenya.

3 Prof Charles Ngome

He served as the deputy governor of Bungoma in Wangamati's regime. He contested in August General elections but lost to Wetang'ula.

4 Wafula Wamunyinyi

The DAP-Kenya party leader who lost his Kanduyi parliamentary seat to Ford Kenya's John Makali also has an eye for the top seat.

5 Reverend Kasili
