Independent candidate Feisal Abdallah Bader has been declared the winner of Tuesday's Msambweni parliamentary by-election.
Feisal, an ally of Deputy President William Ruto, won the seat after garnering 15,251 votes against his closest rival, Omar Boga of Orange Democratic Movement (ODM), who got 10,444 votes.
The final results of the mini-election that attracted eight candidates were announced by Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) returning officer Yusuf Abubakar, who issued Feisal with a certificate on Wednesday morning.
"I want thank the people of Msambweni for believing in me. I want to thank all the people who walked with me through to victory. We will work with our opponents for the sake of our constituency," Feisal said in his acceptance speech.
He thanked Deputy President William Ruto, Kwale Governor Salim Mvurya and others leaders for supporting him
The election was marred by low voter turnout which stood at 39.5 percent. Only 27,313 votes were cast out of the 69,003 registered voters in the constituency.
The seat fell vacant in March this year following the death of Suleiman Dori who was also uncle to Feisal. Dori had been elected on an ODM ticket in the 2017 elections.
