Machakos by-election is around the corner. Different leaders are positioning themselves to capture the seat. Wiper party leader Honorable Kalonzo Musyoka is targeting to cement his influence in the region through the election.
He is facing competition from former Machakos senator Johnston Muthama who is currently campaigning for UDA candidate, a party that is associated with deputy president William Ruto.
Before president Kenyatta banned political gatherings, Kalonzo Musyoka had hosted Amani National Congress party leader Honorable Musalia Mudavadi, Baringo Senator Gideon Moi, and other leaders aimed at drumming support for wiper candidate who happens to be an ex-wife to Johnston.
Well, today according to reports, a candidate allied to Machakos governor Honorable Alfred has pulled out of the race leaving wiper candidate and UDA candidate to fight for the seat.
This gives the wiper candidate the upper hand in retaining the seat that was previously held by its candidate who succumbed to Brain surgery complications.
Mutula Kilonzo Jr has reacted to the news by claiming that someone withdrawing from the race is away of conceding defeat.
