Machakos senator by elections have been set on the 18th March 2022. The seat was left vacant after the death of the former senator John Kabaka. The race has attracted a number of leaders who now wants to fill the post.
The big competition is seen to be between the wiper party candidate Agnes Kavindu the UDA candidate Ngengele and CHAP CHAP candidate Mutua Katuku. However the controversial thing is that the wiper party leader candidate is the Ex wife of the UDA chairman Johnson muthama.
Agnes Kavindu has been seen to have more support from the citizens. She vied for the women representative seat in the 2017 elections and got support from more than 90,000 voters. The former machakos senator Johnson muthama earlier blamed the wiper party leader for endorsing Agnes Kavindu who is his ex wife stating that his aim was to disappoint him.
The senator seat has been said to be a strong determinant over the 2022 state house bid. It seems to be a contest between the wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka and the deputy president William Ruto. The winner here will proof his support in the region ahead of next year's presidential elections.
