According to the notice however Nalyanya Catherine Samini is the area MCA-elect. The same is replicated in the five other wards with the winner in Mihuu Ward, Violet Namayemba of ODM being substituted with that of Kwoba Hezron Hillary. The names of Jack Kawa and Milliah Masungo who were declared winners in Sitikho and Misikhu wards respectively are missing in the notice. Instead it has been indicated that Patrick Lwiki and Barasa Simiyu respectively are the new area MCAs. Speaking to The Standard Wednesday, Mr Mutoka, who is also the Bungoma County ODM chairman and the former minority leader in the county assembly said he did not understand how the anomaly escaped the attention of IEBC officials. “I am shocked that IEBC can have such glaring errors. We need to be told how this happened and the mistake should be rectified immediately. Someone who was number four cannot be declared a winner in the gazette notice," said Mutoka on phone.
