Eugene Wamalwa To Challenge Ruto In 2027 Elections

Democratic Action Party leader Eugene Wamalwa has indicated that he will fight President William Ruto in the 2027 presidential race.Former Defense Secretary Kitale spoke on Sunday.

"It is official that I will contest the 2027 presidential election against my brother, Kenyan President Dr. William Ruto," Wamalwa said. Ruto's advantage."Three of us, President Uhuru Kenyatta, Dr William Samoei Ruto and myself, were led by Ford Kenya leader Musikari Nazi Kombo to seek the top leadership of the country when Mzee Mwai Kibaki is about to retire," Wamalwa said. .

He said it was time to abuse the president in the upcoming general elections as the two forces were tested.Wamalwa said former Kavirondo West leaders are backing one of their own to go to the top.

"There is no secret or doubt that Western Province, where the Mulembe people reside, can produce a president. We are second in the country and we can do it."He said, it is time to achieve the unity of the Luhya community.

The Mulembe community's dream of the top job in the land remains elusive with four of the community's top guns showing interest in the seat.Wamalwa, Prime Minister CS Musalia Mudavadi, National Assembly Speaker Musa Wetang'ula and former Kakamega County Governor Wycliffe Oparanya have all said they will contest. Nzoya County Governor George Nthembeya said it will also feature in the 2032 presidential election.

However, in a political coalition with Musalia and Wetang'ula Ruto, it is unlikely that anyone will challenge him in the 2027 elections.Wamalwa has expressed hope that he will succeed the president and become Kenya's 6th president.

"You remember the Bible when you face the great Goliath. He wore clothes, sandals and a sword and saved the children of Israel," said Wamalwa, confirming that he has what it takes to be president.He vowed to finish Masinde Muliro's race with his brother Michael Kijana Wamalwa who lost his presidential bid.

Muliro, who worked with George Nthenge, Ahmed Bamahiriz, Martin Shikuku, Jaramogi Oginga Odinga, Wamalwa Kijana, George Kaptein, James Orengo and Musikari Kombo, died in August 1992.Kijana, who was Mwai Kibaki's vice president, died in 2003.Wamash Wamalwa said his brother and Muliro are best suited to wear him in the political arena.

He called on governors in the western region to unite by creating an economic bloc, resource allocation and help realize the dream of implementing a solution.The former CS, who served at the helm, noted that the country will get more through the judicious use of allocated funds.
