With claims of the deep state out to finish former prime minister Raila Odinga,sources now claim the president is keen to see his party win the upcoming Bonchari by election.
The former prime minister will be keen to assert his dominance in Kisii county which over the years has been termed as his stronghold as he has enjoyed massive backing from the region.
A battle for supremacy is now looming and Uhuru's latest move of convincing the one Kenya alliance to withdraw their candidates is a clear indication he really wants to win the seat.
ODM allies feel Uhuru's latest plot is only aimed at humiliating their party leader by taming him in his own backyard that could see his wings clipped.
"We are aware of a wider plot to keep Raila close to his turf only.They want to make Raila look like a Luo elder,” a senior ODM official seeking anonymity said.
Jubilee have Zebedo Opore as their flag bearer while ODM have fronted Parvel Oimeke as UDA settled on Teresa Bitutu who is the widow of the former member of parliament John Oroo.
