Busia governor Sospeter Ojaamong's bid to run for Teso South constituency parliamentary seat, would be successful if elections were held today however, with a slim margin. This is according to latest polls by Mizani Africa.
According to the polls, the second term Orange Democratic Movement party governor would win the seat with a very little margin between him and closest rival.
He enjoys the support of 40.5% of the Busia electorates against Mary Otucho who is at 37.8%, a difference of 2.7%. Otucho is a member of the United Democratic Alliance party.
This shows that the race will be a tight one between the two, Ojaamong will do anything to avoid embarrassment considering that he has served as the county's chief. Otucho at the same time will be seeking to prove that the region is no longer a zone of ODM.
On the other side, Incumbent Geoffrey Omuse who is determined to defend his seat is at 17.6 indicating that chances of him defending his seat are minimal.
