"My Life is in Danger," Bonchari Constituency Aspirant Says

Bonchari constituency aspirant Dennis Oyugi has expressed fears for his life, claiming he has been receiving threats from Kisii county officials who have demanded he steps down from the race.

However, Mr Oyugi has maintained he is in the race to succeed Oroo Oyioka, saying no amount of threats will make him step down. He has said the will of the people must be respected and claims he is in the race because Bonchari constituents asked him to run.

The seat has attracted serious interests from major political players, with ODM, UDA and Jubilee tying their laces up for a bruising battle.

ODM has chosen Parvel Oimeke to represent them, while Jubilee party has handpicked former area Mp Zepedeo Opore as their ideal candidate. Ruto's linked UDA party has also handpicked Teresa Oroo, widow to Fallen Mp Oroo Oyioka as their candidate.

UDA, Jubilee and ODM will be locking horns in the constituency for a supremacy battle, just few months to the general election.
