IEBC Preparing for Another Election Next Week

Back to the ballot Kenyans

The polls will be held for the Kitutu Chache Parliamentary seat in Kisii County, Masalani Ward (Garissa) and Bogichora Ward in Nyamira County.

The August 8 poll for the Kitutu Chache Parliamentary seat was postponed after the death of Jubilee Party candidate Leonard Gwaro on July 8.

Mr. Gwaro died during a road crash at Nyakoe area on the Kisii-Kisumu highway while driving to a political rally.

At the same time, Bogichora Ward elections were also suspended after an aspiring MCA from Jubilee party passed away.

Onsomu Okebiro died following a short illness three days to the August 8 General Election.

In a statement, the electoral body stated: “There will be 3 by-elections on Tue 7th. Kitutu Chache South Constituency (Kisii) and Masalani (Garissa) & Bogichora (Nyamira) Wards (CAW)”.
