ODM Bags Two Governor Seats In Mudavadi's Backyard, Kenyans React

In western Kenya, which comprises four counties, the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) has won two gubernatorial seats, and Kakamega's election has been postponed. When announcing the postponement, the IEBC said that incorrect candidate photos and information had been printed on the ballot sheets.

And after the elections on August 9, 2022, ODM triumphed in the counties of Busia and Vihiga, while Ford Kenya held the governor's office in Bungoma.

With Mr. Sospeter Ojaamong having served the maximum two terms as governor in Busia, Dr. Paul Otuoma will take over as governor. The ANC's John Bunyasi received 92,144 votes, falling short of Dr. Otuoma's 164,478 votes. In the back yard of ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi, Dr. Wilber Ottichillo, the Orange party candidate and current governor of Vihiga, comfortably kept his position.

Moses Akaranga, the first Busia governor, of the Progressive Party of Kenya, received 42,432 votes, while Dr. Ottichillo received 82,313 votes (PPK). Alfred Agoi, a member of the ANC, finished in a distant fourth place with 26,088 votes. With 28,496 votes, George Khaniri of the UDP came in third.
