Senator Boni Khalwale and former Senator Cleophas Malala in a past rally.
Taking to his official social media pages, Dr Khalwale claimed that their UDA party had already gained momentum in the region, however, this did not last after they were forced to accept Zoning in Kakamega where UDA candidates stepped down for Mudavadi's Amani National Congress party and Wetang’ula's Ford Kenya party.
"The momentum that the @UDAKenya had built under the Hustler Movement frenzy in Kakamega was slowed down by the forced Kenya Kwanza Alliance decision to zone out Western for ANC & FORD Kenya" The vocal senator posted on his social media pages.
In the last general elections, UDA did not field governor candidate in Kakamega, Vihiga, Bungoma, and even Transzoia, the party also avoided fielding candidates to contests for some other seats within the Western Kenya region, This followed an agreement between Ruto, Mudavadi, and Wetang’ula.
