A group of senior leaders from the vast Western region were hosted by President William Ruto and his deputy Rigathi Gachagua for a consultative discussion today at State House in Nairobi.
Two elected members of parliament from the region were present, according to a picture shared on TV 47 Kenya's official Facebook page. Titus Khamala, a legislator from Lurambi, and Emmanuel Wagwe, a lawmaker from Navakholo, made up the duo.
Emmanuel Wagwe and Titus Khamala both won office on ODM party ballots. Khamala changed parties before the August elections in order to keep his parliamentary seat in Lurambi, moving from the ANC to the ODM.
Before joining the ODM party to run for Navakholo a second time, Emmanuel Wagwe belonged to the Jubilee party, which was in power at the time.
Other Luhya leaders present at the meeting today included Musalia Mudavadi, the secretary of the prime minister's office, Moses Wetangula, the speaker of the national assembly, Bonny Khawlale, the majority whip of the senate from Kakamega, and Francis Atwoli, the general secretary of the COTU.
