DAP-K Dethrones ANC, FK to emerge Biggest Party in Western Kenya ahead of Bungoma Election



Nov 5, 2022

In less than one year since it was launched, the democratic Action Party-Kenya (DAP-K) in the latest rank that was used by the office of the Registrar of Political Parties to allocate Political Parties Fund has emerged the biggest in the region.

According to the gazette notice, DAP-K is the 5th biggest party in the country after UDA, ODM, Jubilee and Wiper, and will recieve Ksh 31M.

The rank gives the party an edge as it seeks to grow further. The results come barely a month to the Bungoma Senator by-election where the party has fronted party leader, Wafula Wamunyinyi.

The news also comes at a time when speculations are rife that UDA has asked ANC and Ford Kenya to fold up and join UDA to make up the biggest party.

If materialised, then DAP-K that’s associated with former Cabinet Secretary, Eugene Wamalwa, will be the sole party of the region. Word has it that the party will soon celebrate it’s one year anniversary, reflect on the journey and undergo reorganization to make it better.

Wamunyinyi was this week endorsed by Azimio leader Raila Odinga to vie fir the seat and the party has already embarked on grassroot campaigns for the seat.

DAP-K has one Governor, 5 MPs and over 40 MCAs drawn across the country. It remains to be seen how the party will sustain itself in the opposition and maintain its grip in the top parties in the country.
