Independent candidate Feisal Bader becomes the next Msambweni Member of Parliament after dethroning Orange Democratic Party (ODM) Omar Boga.
The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) declared in the morning of Wednesday December 16.
Bader, an independent candidate was declared the winner of the Tuesday by-election with 15,251 votes. Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party’s Omar Boga emerged second with 10,444 votes.
Bader received support from Deputy President William Ruto’s Tanga Tanga camp, while Boga was backed by pro-President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga handshake.
It’s no doubt that Bader’s win will escalate the rivalry between the two camps ahead of the 2022 General Election with Ruto having declared interest in succeeding President Kenyatta.
