Wetangula or Marende? Netizens React Over Tim Wanyonyi's Tough Task in Speaker's Vote

Immediately after taking their oaths of office, MPs and Senators are expected to vote for the speakers of the two houses.

It is an exercise that is expected to display supremacy battles between members of the Kenya Kwanza camp and their counterparts from Azimio, with each faction fronting their candidates.

While Ruto's KKA has settled for Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula as their candidate for Speaker of the National Assembly, Azimio has settled for former Speaker Kenneth Marende.

It is a race that is expected to divide the house into two factions. However, one of the MPs who is expected to face some challenges deciding on who to vote for, is Westlands MP Tim Wanyonyi.

While Wanyonyi, who is an Azimio and ODM MP is expected to follow his party's call to vote for Marende, his blood brother Moses Wetangula will also be in the ballot.

This is expected to pause tough challenges for Wanyonyi, who will have to decide between party loyalty and his own brother.

While others have urged Wanyonyi to remain loyal to his party, many have urged him to consider his brother Wetangula, saying blood is thicker than water.

Others have opined that it will be the best time for Wanyonyi to revenge agsinst Azimio after locking him out of Nairobi county gubernatorial race in favour of Igathe.

Here are some reactions;
