”I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone who supported me in this race. My campaign team, who worked day and night to ensure we got this far.

Mombasa woman representative candidate Zamzam Mohamed (Wiper), Senator hopeful Jabess Oduor, Wiper’s Jomvu MP hopeful Mathias Shipeta and Nominated Senator Emma Mburasaid all conceded defeat setting a good precedent for other politicians who refuse to accept the will of the Kenyan people.
“Hey guys, thank you for your kind support. It wasn’t our potion for God’s time is the best time. God bless you abundantly. Congratulations sister Asha Mohammed Hussein,” Zamzam wrote on a WhatsApp group at 5am on Wednesday.
Shipeta also gave way to the people’s will saying: “We live to fight another day. God’s perfect will has been done. Though sad, God will always be great. Thank you, Jomvu,” Shipeta posted on his Facebook account.
