The Federal Party of Kenya (FPK) has unveiled Amos Wafula as its candidate for the Kabuchai by-election slated for March 4.

Wafula received a certificate to be a life member of the party and a nomination certificate at Chwele market yesterday.

He was received by FPK party leader Andrew Kutitila and will now battle it out with Evans Kakai (Independent), Majimbo Kalasinga (Ford Kenya) among other candidates. The seat fell vacant following the death of area MP James Lusweti last December.

Kutitila said Wafula has all it takes to steer development in Kabuchai constituency.

“We as a party believe in peaceful polls and that is why we shall be campaigning here peacefully devoid of incitement to violence and abuses,” he said.

He disclosed that the candidate has leadership qualities, having worked with several NGOs across the world.

Wafula termed his nomination by FPK as a great honour.

“I am running because I believe I have the capacity to serve my people effectively and help slay corruption at both constituency and national level as a lawmaker,” he said.  He denied claims that he could be a spoiler in the race.

“I will stand for justice to ensure every Kabuchai resident has food on the table, clean sufficient water, education for all and all basic needs,” he said.

Deputy President William Ruto is expected to back a candidate in the by-election. National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi declared the seat vacant in a gazette notice dated December 18, 2020.
