Cleophas Malala Omits DP Ruto's Image from His Campaign Posters

ImageGubernatorial candidate for Kakamega on an ANC ticket senator Cleophas Malala has finally opted to do way with deputy president's Dr William Samoei Ruto images from his campaign and promotional posters.Image

In the new posters he has shared on his official twitter account, Malala is in the middle where Ford Kenya party leader is on his left while his ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi is on his right.Image

Malala had secured the Kenya Kwanza gubernatorial ticket after William Ruto led a discussion at his official residence in Karen that resulted into former Ikolomani MP Dr Boniface Khalwale shelve his ambitions in favour of Malala and in turn chose to go for the senate seat.Image

However, sibling rivalry in Kenya Kwanza especially in Kakamega has seen Malala disagree with DP Ruto and his UDA allies in the County.

It is reported ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi and Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetangula had signed a pact with Ruto to deliver 70% of Western Kenya votes before being given 30% share of government in case DP Ruto wins in August 9th presidential polls.Ruto Explains Surprise Visit to Malala's Event -
