Just In:IEBC Gazettes A By-Election In Bungoma To Replace Speaker Wetangula

Moses Masika Wetangula, the party leader for FORD Kenya and the senator for Bungoma, will be replaced by a by-election, according to a key declaration made by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) today, October 6.

Gladys Boss Sholei, a resident of Uasin Gishu, has been chosen to serve as Moses Masika Wetangula's deputy, and he represents the speaker of the national assembly. Wetangula is the leader of the FORD Kenya party.

Independent Electoral Boundaries (IEBC) has ruled that the Bungoma senate seat is vacant, allowing a by-election to be held to fill it. Wetangula resigned and is currently engaged in conflict with former National Assembly speaker Kenneth Marende, who was backed by the Azimio faction.

Wetangula defeated Kenneth Marende to succeed Justin Muturi as speaker of the Kenyan National Assembly, who was chosen by president Ruto to become attorney general.
