Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka and MPs Malulu Injendi (Malava), Emmanuel Wangwe (Navakholo) and Benard Shinali (Ikolomani) are said to have agreed to support Raila, this is according to a statement by the standard newspaper.

Senate speaker Kenneth Lusaka is said to be eying for Bungoma gubernatorial seat again. DP Ruto began his western tour today and will be visiting Busia and Kakamega counties this weekend.
