"I thought my people from Azimio would support me but I was shocked when the voting was done. Some of them voted for people I did not even recognise," 

"I could not believe that would happen to me considering how I stuck out my neck for one of their own," Kega lamented.

Kega also made a suggestion that she might not always back every candidate.

Notably, the DP has described the strategies utilized to recruit MPs from the Kenya Kwanza Alliance and Mount Kenya to support Kega for the regional position.

Gachagua claimed that he backed Kega despite their political differences in an effort to bring the area together, stressing that it was time to move on from small grudges.
