Kitur won with 23,503 votes while Keter got 18,037 votes. His decision to contest on an independent ticket came up after he fell out with deputy president William Ruto. The provisional results showed that Keter lost in many of his strongholds while Kitur who is less known got many votes.
When Keter announced that he was going to run for the parliamentary seat on an independent ticket he was hopeful that he would win. He has carried intense campaigns in his county but that did not help him. Follow the page for more news updates daily.
