United Democratic Alliance party (UDA) supporters in Bungoma county have endorsed former Bumula MP Mwambu Mabonga for the Senate seat left vacant by Moses Wetangula’s election as Speaker of the National Assembly.

Webuye West MP Dan Wanyama said Mwamba was the most suitable for the position. “Mwambu is the only one who can make connections to take Bungoma County to greater heights,"Wanyama said

Speaking in Bungoma town, Wanyama asked Wetangula, who is the leader of Ford Kenya, to support Mwambu.

The MP said Wetangula should reciprocate UDA MPs’ support in the Speaker’s race by backing the party’s candidate.

“We mobilised 144 UDA MPs to vote for Wetang’ula. He should also support Mwambu as an appreciation,” he said.

He said Ford Kenya should not field a candidate in the Senate election and instead support the UDA flagbearer.
