  • Imenti South independent parliamentary candidate and Churchill show comedian, Jasper Muthomi better known as MC Jessy, has conceded defeat.

    In his concession message, Jessy thanked the people of Imenti South for giving him an opportunity to contest for the seat and for supporting him throughout his political journey.

    He went ahead to congratulate Shadrack Mwiti for clinching the seat on a Jubilee Party ticket.

    "To the people of South Imenti Constituency, I sincerely thank you so much for the time we have interacted during our campaign time. It has been a great journey," stated Jessy.

    "A journey of amazing political adventure, a journey of daring hearts. We will continue to engage as we look forward to next time, God willing."

    Jessy was making an entry into elective politics and was keen to capture the seat in the Mount Kenya east part of the country.

    On the other hand, the Nyeri Senatorial candidate on a Narc Kenya ticket, Kabando wa Kabando, conceded defeat after losing in the tightly contested race.

    In his concession speech, Kabando noted that he will still be active in matters of public interest and he also wished his competitors well as they take up the mantle to serve the county in the senate.

    "Our Nyeri First campaign is on pro-people policy issues: basic needs and basic rights. Voters have spoken. It's my turn to concede, which I do. 

    "Congrats to all winners. As always, I remain actively involved in matters of public interest. Thank you Nyeri," he stated.

    Kabando declared his interest in the Nyeri senatorial seat in January 2022 where he was seeking to unseat incumbent Ephraim Maina.

    The counting of votes is still underway at the Nyeri National Polytechnic tallying centre following the closure of polling stations on Tuesday.

    Nyeri Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) County Returning Officer Annastacia Ndunge Mutua informed the press they are still waiting for at least half of the polling stations to deliver their results before they can authentically announce the final results.

    Nyeri County has a total of 965 polling stations spread across the six elective constituencies.

    “We closed our polling stations yesterday evening at 5 pm and embarked on the actual counting of the votes immediately

    "The counting of votes is still ongoing with at least 50 per cent of the polling stations yet to deliver their ballot boxes at our County Tallying centre here at the Nyeri National Polytechnic tally centre,” she stated.
