The Deputy president William Ruto could have a major boost from the luhyia community due to his current popularity as Devolution CS Eugene Wamalwa has changed tune on who they will support in the coming 2022 general elections.
The vocal politician who is a close ally to Uhuru and should be backing Raila has now revealed that the western community will be supporting who he will endorse in December. He has now called on the luhyia community to wait for his direction on who they will vote for as president in next year's general elections.
Speaking at Bumula Constituency as reported in the People's Daily Newspaper, Wamalwa said the his announcement will be made on December of who will win the elections. According to him, his predictions are always right and those who went against him found themselves in opposition as he had earlier predicted Jubilee win in 2013 and 2017.
"In 2013 and 2014 I predicted that Jubilee will form the government and those who said I was misleading the community are in opposition...I will be making an announcement on who will form the next government so be patient," he said while addressing local residents at Mzee Marango's home.
He further urged the community to stick to his advice as the nolonger want to be in opposition. "This time round adhere to whoever I'll tell you to vote in, as we do not want to be in opposition again," he added.
This might be a looming betrayal to Raila as western has always been one of his strongholds but we are yet to see who the community will endorse.
In the meantime politics have taken shape with temperatures rising day by day as it's only around 10 months to the general elections. The two main aspirants to look at are the Deputy President William Ruto and the former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.
