Following Alice Wahome’s appointment by President William Ruto as the cabinet secretary for water and sanitation, the parliamentary seat became vacant.
Aden Duale and Kipchumba Murkomen’s cabinet appointments resulted in the MP and senator seats in Garissa Township constituency and Elgeyo Marakwet County becoming vacant. These by-elections will take place on January 5.
