The political season in Kenya is officially on. Politicians seeking elective seats are on charm offensive trails traversing various parts of the country popularising their candidature in next year's polls scheduled for August 9th.
But today was an unfortunate day for Deputy President William Samoei Ruto who is seen as a frontrunner to succeed President Uhuru Kenyatta. Several vehicles on his campaign mission in Busia County were destroyed today, Saturday, as a section of rowdy youth protested against his political tour of Busia Town.The youth were chanting Orange Democratic Movement party slogans. The youths further attempted to block the DP’s motorcade at Korinda area on the Busia-Kakamega highway.
Deputy President William is touring Western region since yesterday in an attempt to woo the populous region to support his presidential bid in 2022. Other powerful politicians who are banking to control the vote rich region for next year’s polls are Raila Odinga and Musalia Mudavadi.
