A candidate for the Konoin parliamentary seat will also run under the Orange Democratic Movement of Raila Odinga (ODM).

Rift Valley contenders on the Kenya Kwanza ticket prominently feature photographs of Deputy President William Ruto on their campaign materials, whereas those on the Azimio ticket have avoided using images of Raila.

Given that the region is a major base and stronghold of DP Ruto's second-in-command, Faith's decision to display a picture of Raila appears courageous.

Her decision has been met with varied comments on social media, with renowned blogger Robert Alai urging Kenyans to pray for her as she seeks election to the Rift Valley parliament.

She will attempt to win the Rift Valley seat under the Azimio coalition led by Raila Odinga and President Uhuru Kenyatta.
