Edith Nyenze Wins Kitui West Seat With Landslide

The widow of the late Francis Nyenze received her certificate of election from Kitui West IEBC returning officer James Mbai after beating her opponents hands down in an election that was barely contested.
Edith Nyenze won with more than 70% of the votes and promised to serve all her constituents regardless of whether they had voted for her or not.
Edith handed her closest rival a humiliating defeat by gathering 14372 votes thereby beating the second person by 12326 votes. Dennis Muli Mulwa had only managed to garner 2046 votes. The returning officer effectively declared and congratulated Edith Nyenze as the next Kitui West MP.
Going into the by-election, it was largely expected that the lady would win after she was endorsed by NASA and Jubilee. Jubilee secretary general declared that they would support Edith Nyenze, a move opposed by party members in the area.
Edith Nyenze, whose brother Enoch Wambua is Kitui County's senator, is a former principal of Kyondoni secondary school and recently resigned from the Retirement Benefits Authority to contest for the seat became vacant after her husband Francis Nyenze succumbed to illness.
Congratulations are in order.
