Important Condition That Could See a Prominent UDA MP May Resign from Politics Next Week

Residents of Bungoma County on Thursday 8th went to the ballot in a by-election to elect their new Senator after the elevation of Moses Masika Wetangula to the seat of the Speaker of the National Assembly of the Republic of Kenya.

Surprisingly, the contest has seen UDA Party and Ford Kenya lock horns in what has emerged as a first acid test for the Kenya Kwanza Alliance's unity.

UDA party fronted former Bumula Member of Parliament, Mwambu Mabonga while the Lion party had Wafula Wakoli as its flagbearer for the tussle.

Surprisingly, UDA politician and Kimilili Member of Parliament, Didmus Barasa, was among the leading political heavyweights who defied the UDA quest to clinch the seat to campaign for Ford Kenya canditate.

Interestingly, as the results are almost coming, Barasa has revealed that should David Wafula Wakoli fail to clinch the Bungoma Senatorial seat, he will quit politics from next week.

The die is now cast as the people of Bungoma County continue to wait with abated breath to know their new Senator. Is Didmus Barasa going to hang his political boots from next week?
