In an effort to unseat ODM leader Raila, Kenya Kwanza leaders from the Western region pledged to cast 70% of the ballots in Ruto's favor.
In contrast to Cleophas Malala, who is running to replace Wycliffe Oparanya as governor, Bonny Khalwale is running for the Kakamega senatorial seat on the UDA ticket. Malala is running against ODM hopeful Farnandes Barasa.
On Sunday at Kakamega, Kenya Kwanza was headed by Musalia. Among other influential people, he was with Malala and Khalwale.
Khalwale urged Mudavadi to focus on the presidential election rather than local politics while being booed by the large crowd.
Khalwale's disagreements with ANC partners in Kakamega county are not new. Khalwale already claimed that Malala and Barasa were both qualified and deserving of public scrutiny while he was running for office in Matungu.
Political experts have predicted that DP Ruto may suffer from the Western sibling disputes in the final days before the election.
As they fight to counter assault the power of Kenya Kwanza, Raila's friends in the West are taking no chances. On Saturday and Sunday, the governor of Busia county, Oparanya Barasa, drummed up support for Raila.
