Itabidi Nirudi Nyuma Ya Hema, MP Wamuchomba Makes a U-Turn as She Accepts Juja Defeat

Moments after People's Empowerment Party (PEP) candidate George Koimburi was announced the winner of the just concluded Juja constituency by-election, Uhuru Kenyatta's allied MP Gathoni Wa Muchomba seems to have made a U-Turn on her earlier stand.

Taking to her Facebook page, Wamuchomba, who had been so vocal accusing the IEN=BC of stealing some votes for the PEP candidate, swallowed her bride and congratulated the winner.

Despite her earlier stern stand together with Kiambu Governor James Nyoro, Wamuchomba acknowledged Koimburi's victory, saying the people of Juja had spoken and that their voice should be respected.

She admitted that from the look of things, it was clear that the PEP candidate was going to win by a landslide and that Jubilee should accept defeat.

"Politics is a game of numbers and numbers don't lie. from the onset, its beeb clear the PEP candidate was winning and our Jubilee candidate was loosing," read part of her statement.

In a controversial admission, the legislator said she have to retreat behind the tent and plan her political strategies. She also congratulated the party leader Moses Kuria for the spirited fight in the constituency.

Despite her and colleagues threatening to move to court to challenge the results in the morning, the MP, who seemed to have gotten contented urged the Jubilee candidate Susan Waititu to instead accept results and live to fight another day.
