1.) Hassan Joho – biggest winneragainst all odds. Simply put, he told Mt Kenya mafia- pwani sio ya mama yao. He told them to take intimidations, threats and voter bribery to Kericho and other areas penye wenyeji wamekubali kupangwa kama matefali. Aliawaambia warudi na pesa zao Central.
2.) William Ruto – whatever thefts and briberies took place in Kericho, this was a “win” this man needed badly. I mean he is under sieke. Ukweli usemwe.
3.) Isaac Ruto – by garnering over 50,000 votes in an area that is considered to be a JAP zone where the DP himself camped with state machinery and cash, he has successfully tested the ground and sent a warning to Uhuru and Mt Kenya mafia. That Kalenjins are waking up faster than he thinks. May be, just may be, they won’t accept to be arranged like bricks by Mt Kenya mafia in 2017.
4.) Uhuru – lost terribly! He poached and rewarded an ODM member as if JAP has no people to be given ministerial positions. He camped in Coast for two weeks campaigning for Charo. He unleashed ‘Eurobond’ cash on the people. He kept off Kericho campaigns in what analysts say, to tame or to teach William Ruto a lesson. End results; ODM has a new MP and a Minister in Malindi. Uhuru came out with NOTHING.
The Malindi by-election was actually Hassan Joho Vs Uhuru contest, the rest were just supporting cast. Governor Joho KNOCKED Uhuru out completely!
