Homa Bay governor candidate Oyugi Magwanga’s (pictured) name has finally been gazetted by the IEBC. His name had been initially omitted from the list of contenders. Magwanga, an independent, is seeking to unseat incumbent Cyprian Awiti on August 8.

“We have overcome obstacles that have been placed on our path. We are more convinced that victory is on our side,” the independent said.
