Tomorrow Kitui West constituency’s 52,042 registered voters will troop to the polling stations to elect their next member of Parliament after the death of Francis Nyenze in December last year.
The front runner is Wiper Democratic Movement’s Edith Vethi Nyenze, wife of the late Francis Nyenze.
Candidates for the Kitui West parliamentary by-election wound up their campaigns yesterday, with each promising goodies to constituents once elected to Parliament in tomorrow’s election.
Other candidates are Robert Leli (Narc-Kenya), Dennis Mulwa (Independent), Fridah Mutui (KSC) and Elijah Kilonzo (CCM)
In the past few days, the candidates have been making a last-ditch effort to woo voters.
Key issues include bursaries, provision of healthcare, water and poor road network.
Earlier in the week, Mrs Nyenze’s campaign was bolstered by Wiper boss Kalonzo Musyoka, who led Wiper’s top hierarch to campaign for her, before bringing along a campaign team comprising National Super Alliance principals Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetang’ula.
