With about seven months to August ninth general elections,Kenya is continuing to witness a charged political environment.It was just few days ago when Amani National Congress Party Leader Wycliffe Musalia Mudavadi unleashed an earthquake pronouncement that has indeed changed the political gameplan in the country.
Since Musalia's move to work with Deputy President William Samoei Ruto hit the political atmosphere,there have been witnessed series of political defections in Western Kenya region.Most of the Legislatures allied to Mudavadi and ANC have since ditched the party for Raila's Azimio La Umoja Movement.The legislatures who have since defected to Azimio La Umoja include Peter Nabulindo (Matungu), Christopher Aseka(Kwhisero),Titus Khamala (Lurambi),Tindi Mwale (Butere)OKu Kaunya(Teso North), Ayub Savula (Lugari),Nominated MP Geoffrey Osotsi and Vihiga Senator George Khaniri.
Wading into these defection's gymnastics, Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala has spilled the beans on what was alledgedly done to him in a bid to be wooed to equally ditch ANC for Azimio La Umoja.Malala who was speaking during their political rally in Posts Ground in Bungoma on Friday,alledged that he was approached and allegedly bribed with Sh20 million in order to betray Mudavadi and join Azimio.
He opined that he was approached alongside Kabuchai MP Majimbo Kalasinga but they stayed put as they affirmed their commitment to support Mudavadi to the end.
Even as Malala unleash these grave allegations, Raila's side has remained mum and haven't responded to these claims that may taint the image of the former Prime Minister in the entire Mulembe Nation.Whether the allegations are true or mere fabricated propaganda remains for the political bigwigs themselves.It is indeed true to say that politics is a dirty game.
