DAP-K Concludes Nomination For MCAs Candidates in Bumula, Wamboka Lands Direct Ticket To Contest For MP’s Seat


The Democratic Action Party-Kenya (DAP-K) on Sunday concluded its nomination exercise for MCAs aspirants across wards in Bumula constituency.

The exercise was spearheaded by the constituency leaders led by Pawell Silisisi and Dan Sawa who led delegates in the exercise. 

The nomination took place in Bumula, Khasoko and Kimaeti Wards where Francis Walekhwa was nominated for Bumula ward, Mwalimu Fred Masinde was nominated for Khasoko ward while Vincent Namasaka took the Kimaeti ward. 

The exercise had attracted many aspirants in the wards forcing the party to conduct opinion polls, seek consensus before the delegates could vote to choose on competing aspirants. 

However, the exercise in West Bukusu ward didn’t take place since Job Mukoyandali was given a direct ticket following withdrawal of his competitor.

In Siboti ward, incumbent MCA Wamusai Simiyu has been handed a direct ticket by the party. 

The same is also expected in Kabula ward where the sitting MCA Vitalis Wangila is set to fly the party’s ticket. 

In South Bukusu, word has it that former MCA Fwaro who is a front runner is set to be given the ticket tomorrow. 

The completion of the exercise now means Bumula has all the seven wards fully represented and the constituency aspirant Jack Wanami Wamboka flying the ticket. 

Wamboka was handed a direct ticket at the party’s Chui House Headquarters on Thursday. 

While announcing the results, Bumula secretary General Dan Sawa urged all aspirants to back the winners since there can only be one winner. 

“We have assembled the best team for Bumula that will compete and deliver, we urge all aspirants and party members to support the candidates so that we win together. As a team, we did our best and in case of any challenges, we shall address them and ensure we move together as a team,” said Sawa.

DAP-K attracted over 1,200 aspirants across the country for various seats with over 700 MCAs seeking the party’s ticket. 

The aspirants in some areas have expressed concerns on the mode of picking candidates while the party has maintained the process is the best and losers should be ready to back winners and forward complaints to the party’s dispute tribunal council.
