Kiamokama Ward in Masaba South, Kisii County by-election.
Written by Inka FM on 4 March 2021
Residents at Kiamokama Ward turned up in large numbers at dawn to vote-in a new MCA. The seat had been vacant for some time after the death of The Late MCA Kennedy Mainya in November last year due to Covid-related illness.
11 candidates are contesting for the seat. ODM’s Malack Matara, Daniel Ondabu (Party of Economic Development) and Nyandusi Nyakeramba (UDA) are some of the contestants.
The voting was expected to be peaceful as the Masaba South Sub-County Returning officer Mark Manco said. Unfortunately, their were claims that some people targeted to interfere with the voting process and that led to arrest of some candidates.
The United Democratic Alliance candidate in the Kiamokama by-elections in Kisii Nyandusi Nyakeramba was arrested together with Don Bosco (Kitutu Chache South), Zaheer Chanda (Nyaribari Chache) and Kisii County Governor’s office Dalfant Nyatige.
