ODM wins Ugenya North by-election

The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) has emerged victorious in the Ugenya North Ward by-election after its candidate Shaban Omar won with 3,370 votes.

Shaban beat the Jubilee Alliance Party (JAP) candidate, Steve Mwanga, who got 1,670 votes and Kanu’s Lazarus Otieno who came third with 109 votes.

The election that was touted to be a two-horse race between the JAP and ODM candidates was not without hitches as claims of rampant election malpractices marred the exercise.

ODM had earlier raised concerns about alleged vote buying in the exercise.
