Deputy President William Ruto's ally Former Kakamega and a medical doctor Senator Boni Khalwale is now facing a moment of truth in his senatorial bid under UDA Party, after the Orange Democratic Movement party unveiled its senatorial aspirant.

Through his Twitter account on Sunday, ODM's deputy party leader Governor Wycliffe Oparanya revealed that after a consensus, the party had resolved to rally behind the former Dean of Medicine at Egerton University, and the Rural Private Hospitals Association of Kenya chairman Doctor Brian Lishenga.

"After lengthy deliberations and negotiations with 3 ODM Party aspirants for the Kakamega Senatorial seat, we have reached a consensus that Dr Brian Lishenga will fly the party's ticket," wrote Oparanya.

Those who dropped their bid in support of the medical doctor are Simbauni Ndombi and Benjamin Nandama.

Apart from Khalwale, Lishenga will be facing either Sammy Aina or DAP-K's Winfred Asiko or Nabasanga Kaira.

In a past address, Lishenga revealed that he was relying on the youth to propel him in to office, affirming that his main agenda will be to ensure improved healthcare, education and also people-centered prosperity.

Urging the youth to support his bid, Lishenga told the youths that he has their interests at heart.

"Both of us are medical doctors and educated, but the difference between us is the age bracket. I'm young and energetic," said Lishenga after being asked on whether he was ready to face off Boni Khalwale.
