The Deputy President William Ruto led United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party has made another major victory in Mt Kenya Region following the concluded by-election in Rurii Ward, Nyandarua County.

This is after the UDA's candidate won the Rurii Ward By-election. Francis Muraya Githaiga was vying for the Member of County Assembly post via UDA party ticket and has finally emerged the winner. Francis Muraya Githaiga will be the next MCA serving people of Rurii Ward for the remaining short time before the next General Election.

Francis Muraya Githaiga's victory was announced by IEBC. The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission stated that Francis Muraya was the duly elected MCA following the conclusion of votes counting at Rurii Ward.

Rurii Ward is in Nyandarua County where the former MCA John Mburu Githinji had died earlier this year hence leading to a by-election.

Nevertheless, IEBC didn't indicate the number of votes Francis Muraya secured in the by-election as well as the votes other candidates garnered.

The other contestants in the just concluded Ward by-election were Peter Thinji of Jubilee and Susan Wangeci who vied for the MCA seat using New Democrats of Kenya party ticket.
