William Kisang, a former member of parliament for Marakwet West, has been nominated for the Elgeyo Marakwet Senate seat on the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) ticket.

21 candidates campaigned for the position, and William Kisang emerged victorious.

When the results were announced, Kisang received 28,136 votes, as announced by Nicodemus Bore, the UDA county returning officer.

Tim Kipchumba and Jonah Tanui received 26,766 votes each, tying for second place.

There are 529 polling stations in the county with 108,664 registered voters, but just a minority actually cast ballots in the recently finished primary.
Runner-up Tim Kipchumba offered an explanation, pinning the blame for poor voter participation on the UDA leadership.

Kisang, who represented Marakwet West in parliament from 2013 to 2022, is attempting to return to politics.

The former lawmaker is famous for sponsoring many bills to regulate the betting industry in Kenya, which ultimately led to the closure of several betting platforms.

The politician attended Kenyatta University and earned a degree in computer science and statistics.
