Eugene Wamalwa To Vie For Presidency In 2027, Alleges How He Was Supposed To Be Uhuru's Running Mate

The leader of the Democratic Action Party, Eugene Wamalwa, has said he will challenge President William Ruto in 2027.

"I will officially be opposing my brother, the President of Kenya, William Ruto, in the 2027 presidential elections," Wamalwa said.

He said that he was supposed to be Uhuru Kenyatta's running mate, but that plans changed in favor of William Ruto instead.

Since the two had already experimented with executive authority, he said the next general election was his chance to run for president.

Wamalwa said he backed a run for president by a former Western Kavirondo leader and encouraged other leaders to do the same.

"Western Province, home to the Mulembe people, has the potential to produce a president, and this is neither a secret nor a question. We're the country's second-largest ethnic group, and we're doing ok," Wamalwa said.

He said that the time had come for the long-sought unity of the Luhya community.
