Also in the political tussle later today, there will also be contests for the deputy-speaker position in both the national assembly and the senate where William Ruto-backed Gladys Boss Sholei will be battling it out with Daadab Member of Parliament, Faarah Maalim who held the national assembly deputy speaker post between 2007 and 2013.

In the Senate, on the other hand, Kilifi Senator Stewart Madzayo of Azimio will compete against his Meru counterpart Mr Kathuri Murungi of Kenya Kwanza.
