Opinion: Hon. Wamunyinyi could succeed speaker Wetangula

The looming by-election for Bungoma's senatorial seat has been scheduled to take place on December 8, 2022, according to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) through their chair Mr. Wafula Chebukati.

This is after Hon. Moses Wetangula's appointment as National Assembly speaker on September 8, 2022, which left the seat vacant. After trouncing his closest competitor Mr. Kenneth Marende who was fronted by the Azimio coalition for National Assembly speaker's seat.

The race is intensifying to succeed speaker Moses Wetangula between the Azimio coalition headed by Mr. Odinga and Kenya Kwanza Alliance (KKA) championed by the president Ruto where the duo will be squaring it out in the race to succeed speaker Wetangula. With the entry of former Kanduyi constituency lawmaker Hon. Wafula Wamunyinyi and also the party leader of DAP Kenya party leader.

The DAP Kenya candidate had the potential to succeed Mr. Wetangula in the race based on his political experience in the county. In the previous general elections on August 9, he unsuccessfully defended his seat to Mr. John Makali Ford kenya candidate. If the Ford kenya party and the UDA party fronted their candidates then Mr. Wamunyinyi had high chances of clinching the senatorial seat. Now could former Kanduyi constituency lawmaker Mr. Wamunyinyi succeed Mr. Wetangula.
