As political temperatures continue to rise in Kenya, the two political bigwigs Raila Odinga and William Ruto are trying hard to ensure they are gaining more popularity day by day.The two are traversing the country to ensure they gather more votes ahead of 2022 general elections. The two are also ensuring that they get support from influential leaders who will support their Presidential ambitions.
With Musalia Mudavadi forming a coalition with Deputy President William Ruto, the political arena seems more slippery for the Azimio La Umoja's leader Raila Odinga. Musalia Mudavadi's move has attracted controversies and criticisms from various leaders.
While addressing suppoters in their joint rally between UDA party, ANC and Ford Kenya parties in Nakuru, the Kakamega County Senator Cleophas Malala has spilled the beans about the Government's or rather deep State's plans to lure ANC members to decamp ANC and support Raila Odinga's presidential bid. He insisted that the government is promising to give them millions of money as an enticement tool.
He also said that he received a phone call from the Government's quarter requesting him to be given undisclosed amount of money inorder to decamp ANC Party and join Azimio. He firmly said that he can not betray Mudavadi.
Notably this comes a day after President Uhuru Kenyatta on Tuesday, January, 25, held a meeting with a cross-section of Western Kenya leaders who paid him a courtesy visit at State House, Nairobi.
