A win for Tanga Tanga

The win for Mr Bader has been seen as a win for DP Ruto and MPs allied to the Tanga Tanga wing.

Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga had indicated that the Msambweni parliamentary by-election would be a test for the popularity of the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) referendum bill.

"The by-election is a test for the BBI report and as a party that supports the constitutional changes in the country, we have to win this seat by a margin of 80 to 90 per cent," he stated at the time.
