The Bungoma senator seat has been vacant ever since Moses Wetangula resigned after being elected as the national assembly speaker.Fresh elections to determine the new senator will be held on the 8th of December.In my opinion,Wafula Wamunyinyi who is vying under the Domocratic Action Party of Kenya is the perfect candidate for the job.This is because number one, Wamunyinyi has more political experience compared to his other rivals.He served as member of parliament for Kanduyi from 2013 to this year where he lost at the general elections.During this time he managed to bring development in the constituency and their is no doubt he will deliver as senator if elected by the locals.Number two is Wamunyinyi is Bungoma's very own like Moses Wetangula.Locals want their own not someone who has been out and has only come back for votes.Being their own means you can relate to their problems.Wamunyinyi can easily relate with the demands and will perform.
