Ford Kenya has recaptured the Kabuchai Constituency Parliamentary seat in the hotly contested Thursday, March 4 by-election.
The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) declared Ford Kenya’s candidate Majimbo Kalasinga the winner of the poll on Friday morning.
Majimbo garnered 19,274 votes with his closest rival, United Democratic Alliance (UDA) candidate Evans Kakai emerging second with 6,455 votes.
The seat fell vacant following the death of MP James Lusweti on December 4.
Lusweti was first elected to the National Assembly in 2013 on Ford-Kenya ticket after trouncing the late Philip Mukuyi who unsuccessfully challenged his election in court.
The MP successfully defended his seat in 2017.
