When One Door Closes Another One Is Opened, Kanini Kega Says After Allegedly Losing in His Reelection Bid

Kieni lawmaker Kanini Kega lost in his bid for re-election as member of parliament for the third time. His campaign was dubbed #Season three. He would however be casualty to the UDA wave that swept over the Jubilee candidates in mount Kenya. UDA party preliminarily won all the seats in Nyeri county. No space at all for the Jubilee party.

On his Facebook profile, Kanini wrote what looked like a concession speech. He wrote, "Opening a new chapter, when one door closes another one is opened. Heading to Bomas." Bomas is where all the vote final verification and tallying will be done. Announcement on the winner will be done from the same place.

Kanini Kega was one of Raila's key soldiers from the mountain. He was instrumental in the Raila campaigns in Mount Kenya. Despite having worked well as a member of parliament,the UDA wave became too strong even for himself.
