Dagoreti North MP Simba Arati is the new Kisii county governor-elect.
Arati clinched the seat by landslide garnering 270,928 votes to floor a battery of seven competitors including Ezekiel Machogu of UDA who finished second with 82,104 votes.
Others elected to new political offices are Kitutu Chache South MP Richard Onyonka (ODM) who clinched the senate seat and Donya Toto (Wiper Party) who won the Kisii woman rep seat.
Onyonka emerged victorious to deny Omingo Magara and Joash Maangi precious victory.
Toto snatched victory from Janet Ongera (ODM) and a host of others in the woman representative race.
Arati was in the gubernatorial contest alongside Infrastructure CAS Chris Obure (Jubilee), Sam Ongeri (DAP-K) Manson Oyongo (KNC) Ratemo Onchiri (USAWA) and Bishop Josiah Onyancha (Independent) who all got in the lows of hundreds across all wards.
In his victory speech, Arati said he is ready to work with all his competitors in building the county.
"We have won, let's now work together, you were worthy competitors," Arati said.
Only Senator Ongeri who vied on DAPK party ticket turned up to witness the results declaration exercise and congratulated Arati.
Arati received his certificate in the presence of enthusiastic supporters at the Kisii Polytechnic county tallying centre.
Outgoing governor James Ongwae sent congratulatory message to Arati in what appeared like a move to create a rapport with the governor-elect.
Arati and his predecessor have had frosty relations.
"Mine is to wish you good health and best wishes as you embark on the journey of fulfilling your promises and manifesto to the people of Kisii County," Ongwae said in a tweet Friday.
Arati said he is out to make the county great, spur revenue collection and set things right.
He called on striking health staff back to work and promised radical reforms in health, agriculture and commerce.
The former legislator thanked voters and members of his campaign team for standing with him and handing him a resounding victory.
"I thank my deputy, Robert Monda, Senator Onyonka for their sterling efforts. With you, we overcame all and I promise we will go far together," he said.
Throughout his campaigns, Arati championed the cause of the poor and his resolve to confront graft.
He promised to seize by the collar people privatising public wealth and hand them to jailers.
Arati, the son of peasants from Nyamache in Bobasi, tells tales of struggle and poverty and struggle to reach where he is today, a journey of unbowed hope.
