Update from #MachakosByElection. Agnes Kavindu of @skmusyoka Wiper Party is leading UDA Party of @WilliamsRuto with over 70 percent of votes cast. It was indeed a walk-over. Kudos to the @MusaliaMudavadi, Moi, Weta & Kalonzo alliance.
Johnstone Muthama will be forgiven for thinking he has any voice in Ukambani after Urbanus Ngengele of UDA was humiliated by his former wife and Wiper’s Agnes Kavindu, Muthama has realized Kalonzo is the one who made him.
Agnes Kavindu has won resoundingly to become the third Senator of Machakos County. The seat fell vacant after the unfortunate death of the Late Kabaka.
The win shows how Kalonzo has greater political pull than Muthama and Ruto combined.
Kalonzo’s new coalition fronted candidates in Matungu, Kabuchai and Machakos. They have won all of them. This is a clear indication that while Ruto’s star is dimming, Kalonzo’s trajectory to State House is unstoppable.
It will not be surprising to see more leaders flocking to Kalonzo begging to be part of his coalition with Mudavadi, Weta and Giddy. The son of Ukambani has his eyes firmly set on the grand prize.
The next few days will be hard for UDA supporters. Ngengele will have to tell Muthama what he did with all the money he was given to campaign.
Muthama on the other hand will face angry Ruto wanting to know why they failed so terribly in Machakos. Ruto on his side will be ashamed how his party has crumbled spectacularly.
Kudos to the
@anc_party @KANUParty_ke @FORDkenyaKE and Wiper party alliance. Expect good things.
