"We are ahead." Evans Kidero sends a message to his supporters.

Former Nairobi city governor Dr Evans Odhiambo Kidero has sent a message of hope to his supporters assuring them that all is well and they he is ahead in the Homabay county gubernatorial seat.

Dr Kidero had thanked his supporters for showing him support during the campaign period and coming out in large numbers to vote him as the second governor for Homabay County.

"All is well. We are ahead. Just relax and remain peaceful as you prepare to celebrate our big victory pending confirmation by the IEBC tomorrow morning." Kidero wrote in his official Facebook page.

Dr Kidero who was running against Hon Gladys Wanga on an independent ticket has defied all the odds to beat an ODM candidate in Raila's 'bedroom' of Homabay county.

The two candidates have run a successful and a peaceful campaign since Hon Gladys Wanga was awarded a direct party nomination in mid May. The action of the party of awarding Mrs Wanga the direct ticket trigerred most of the voters who vowed to vote against the popular ODM party.

Provisional results show that Dr Kidero is leading in the race with 80 percent of the total votes cast.
