Kalonzo out of Speaker race

Wiper Democratic Movement party boss Stephen Kalonzo Musyoka has withdrawn from the race to be the next Speaker of the Senate.

 According to Clerk Jeremiah Nyegenye, Kalonzo wrote a letter confirming his withdrawal. There was a mass exodus of Azimio la Umoja coalition senators from the chambers of the House during the voting.

Former Kilifi governor Amason Jeffah Kingi was elected the speaker with 46 votes.

A senate speaker should be elected with at least two-thirds of votes which is 45 votes. Kingi met the threshold. He was declared duly elected Speaker by Senate Clerk Mr Nyegenye.
