MP Kimunya Bids Kipipiri Goodbye

Amos Kimunya, the majority leader of Kenya's National Assembly, conceded defeat on Wednesday even before the official results had been released.

After serving in parliament for 15 years in Kipipiri, the lawmaker resorted to social media to express his gratitude to the residents of his hometown.

"Our expectations were not met by the outcome of the vote." I and #TeamKimunya will respect the decisions of the people in a democracy, and that's what democracy is all about. "Kimunya was the last to speak.

As the MP put it, the results of the polls on Tuesday were historic for the Mt. Kenya area, which includes Kipipiri.

As long as there are people like us in Kipipiri, history will never be able to erase what we have done for them. No matter what happens, the will of the people must be respected, "he commented.

Kimunya congratulated the winners and thanked everyone who had helped him along the way.

"We are grateful to everyone who has helped us along the way." Every day brings new and often unforeseen situations that form our lives, "he tacked on.

Jubilee Alliance Party candidate Kimunya won the seat in 2017 by defeating former MP Samuel Gichigi, a member of the Alliance Party of Kenya.
