Ms Wamalwa is among officials who were concerned by the low voter turnout recorded in the mini-poll. 21.9 per cent of the 623, 536 registered voters voted.

Going forward, Ms Wamalwa urged politicians to ensure they mobilise voters to participate in elections.

The win ends weeks of electioneering characterised by intense campaigns that kicked off following the death of senator Boniface Kabaka three months ago.

The highlight of the campaigns were the last minute withdrawal of John Mutua Katuku, who was the Maendeleo Chap Chap Party candidate. Machakos governor Alfred Mutua said that the move was influenced by President Uhuru Kenyatta who asked all friendly parties in the race to consider working as one.

Many observers saw the by-election as a contest between Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka and Deputy President William Ruto who is associated with UDA.

“The voters have spoken loudly that Machakos is Mr Musyoka’s bedrock,” Transport CAS Wavinya Ndeti said.
