Ngilu supremacy battles"/>
For some time now, the politics of the lower Eastern region mostly populated by the Akamba community have been murky as kingpins of the region muscle for power.
Among them are Wiper Party leader Kalonzo Musyoka and Kitui Governor Charity Ngilu who have not been seeing each other eye to eye even as they are members of the same coalition, Azimio - OKA alliance.
Others are the Makueni governor Kivutha Kibwana and his Machakos counterpart Alfred Mutua who accused Kalonzo of using his perceived bigger political muscle to harass them.
However, Ngilu and Kalonzo met today during the Azimio council meeting, and their candid photo together after the discussion has been the subject of debate online.
Below are some of the reactions from Kenyans.
This comes just a day after Kibwana claimed that Kalonzo wants him out of the Azimio structures arguing that it has become impossible to work with the former Vice president in the Ukambani region under Azimio.
The Makueni governor said he had no choice but to make peace with this reality and he hopes history will be kind to Azimio presidential candidate Raila Odinga.
He had earlier stated that all parties that support Raila should be allowed to campaign for him.
