Former Bumula MP Mwambu Endorsed To Succeed Wetang’ula As Bungoma Senator

by Pauline Waswa

Former Bumula MP Mwambu Mambonga has been endorsed to succeed Moses Wetang’ula in the upcoming Bungoma Senatorial by-election.

The Bungoma senatorial seat fell vacant following Wetang’ula’s election as the National Assembly speaker.

In a prayer meeting that was held at the former MP’s home in Mwiyanga, Bumula Sub County, Mwambu Mabonga received endorsement from different attendees including the clergy led by Rev Francis Sarana.

They pulled their weight behind his senatorial bid saying that he is of age and has experience in politics, asking the Ford Kenya party leader to back him as his best replacement.

“We thank the president for considering our son Moses Wetangula for the position of the speaker and now we just ask him to back Mabonga because he is equal to the task,” said Sarana.

Mwambu Mabonga in his statement said that he is hoping that the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) fastens in declaring the seat officially vacant and announcing the dates on which the exercise shall take place.

Mwambu assured the residents of Bungoma County that he is strongly on the ballot asking the residents to elect him.

“I am appealing to the people of Bungoma to refuse being swayed or told on whom to vote for, let everyone sit down and give it a thought on the roles of a senator and weigh each and every person who has declared an interest on this seat then decide basing on the experience, the social capital, the political capital and the courage that they have to face issues when they emerge in this county,” said Mwambu.
