Deputy President William Ruto is keen on capturing various elective seats across Western Kenya as parties forming the coalition will be fielding candidates for seats.
Parties including United Democratic Alliance (UDA), Amani National Congress (ANC), Ford Kenya among others in the Kenya Kwanza brigade look forward to winning seats in the region as they field candidates.
However, Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka has sent a warning to Kenya Kwanza against underestimating the strength of Raila Odinga's Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party in the Western Kenya.
Lusaka has said that despite Kenya Kwanza being strong in the region's Bungoma, Vihiga, Kakamega and Busia counties, ODM is still a force to reckon.
"Kenya Kwanza is very strong in Bungoma, Vihiga, Kakamega and Busia. Of course, we cannot underestimate the strength of the ODM party but Kenya Kwanza has a head start in the region," Speaker Kenneth Lusaka said.
Lusaka eyes the Bungoma County Gubernatorial seat on a United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party ticket to unseat Governor Ottichilo.
