ANC Candidate Peter Nabulindo Wins Matungu Parliamentary By-Election
Mudavadi’s Amani National Congress (ANC) Party candidate Peter Nabulindo wins the hotly contested Matungu Parliamentary By-election which was held on Thursday, March 4th.
Peter Nabulindo won the Parliamentary seat after garnering 14,260 votes in the by-election which was hotly contested.
Nabulindo’s main challenger was Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) candidate David Were who managed to get 10,565 votes in the second position.
United Democratic Alliance (UDA) candidate Alex Lanya who was linked to Deputy President managed to get 5,513 votes to become the third in the By-election.
Matungu By-election was seen as the contest between the ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi, Deputy President William Ruto, and ODM leader Raila Odinga. All three have shown interest to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta and therefore the by-election gave the leaders ground to flex their political muscles ahead of the 2022 general elections.
Matungu parliamentary seat fell vacant after the death of MP Justus Murunga last year.
