Several by-elections are set to take place in 2023 after some leaders allied to President William Ruto were nominated for various cabinet secretary positions.
Elgeyo Marakwet and Bungoma Senatorial posts are vacant after Moses Wetangula got the National Assembly speaker post and Kipchumba Murkomen got a cabinet secretary post.
According to reliable reports, politician William Kisang who was vying for the United Democratic Alliance party ticket for the Elgeyo Marakwet Senatorial by-election post has celebrated his massive win from their nominations.
William Kisang managed to scoop several votes and got the UDA ticket in which he will vie for the seat in the 2023 by-election. He managed to get 28,136 votes, his close opponent Tim Kipchumba got 26,756 and JK Tanui got 26,735.
The Elgeyo Marakwet by-election will be a tough one to predict but it is clear that President Ruto’s UDA will scoop the win.
