Kisii Kenya 05 April 2021.……..As election campaigns now experienced in Bonchari constituency ahead of a By-election slated 18th May residents are now weighing who would be better placed to represent them in Parliament for the remaining 9 months to another general election after the death of their Mp the late Oloo Oyioka.
Led by Martin Ongwenyi a senior resident in the area who also represents people living with disability in the constituency ,residents say the seat left vacant should not be taken for granted by the Bogiakumu clan.
“I will repeatedly say without fear of contradiction that Bogiakumu person should be the one to be considered as a notable candidate”, he stated adding that other clans have been represented more than the Bogiakumu.
According to him other candidates are good but to some level the Kenya social congress party candidate David Ogega Oyugi fits the shoes of the former late Mp than anybody else considering he easily accessible and has a down to earth character which other candidates lack.
“Other candidates have questionable characters from theft to fraud and we as abanchari can’t afford to have wasted time voting in a person of such type thus considering the KSC candidate”,Ongwenyi posed asking those other candidate to hold their horses until their time comes.
He praised the KSC candidate for being at the forefront of fighting for academic excellence in the area since he was a teacher till now when he assists the less fortunate in the constituency to access education through his own means which have not been seen from other contestants.
Ongwenyi further warned that they [voters ]will not be entertaining foreigners from outside Bonchari to come deciding for them their next leader as they have previously done in other areas like kiamokama but will stand to openness to political tussle.
