He is one of the biggest supporters of Azimio la Umoja presidential candidate Raila Odinga in a region where ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi considers his key stronghold.

Now as he battles for a third straight term in Parliament, Luanda MP Chris Wamalwa's is facing the biggest test of his political career. If he plays it safe, he will survive. If not, he is doomed to spend the next five years in the cold.

Since announcing his arrival into politics in 2013, Omulele has slowly metamorphosised into a political heavyweight. A key ally of the Azimio la Umoja presidential candidate, the legislator has made many enemies in Mudavadi's home county of Vihiga. Will he survive this time round?

At the time Mudavadi is keen to stamp his authority in Western Kenya region politics and lock out Raila, Omulele could become one of the biggest casualties.

As he battles to the battlefield in his quest for a third straight term in office, the legislator is up against new entrants who are keen to cut short his dominance of Luanda politics come the August 9 general election.

By openly defying Mudavadi and opting to stick with Raila, Omulele could be making a very dangerous political risk. Will he survive?
