Kakamega senator, Cleophas Malala, has today held various rallies in his county as the deputy president continued with his Western Kenya tour. Ruto was today (October 23rd) in Busia county after making successful rallies yesterday in Kakamega county.
The rallies held by Malala attracted hundreds of people something that has forced Ruto's digital strategist Dennis Itumbi to react. After seeing the huge crowds, Itumbi has said that Cleophas Malala should be handed over the One Kenya Alliance (OKA) presidential candidature.
According to Itumbi, the current OKA principals can hardly pull such a huge crowd and therefore it would be fair if Malala was gifted with the presidential ticket. The OKA alliance is yet to decide on who will go for the presidential seat.
However, according to Malala, he conducted the rallies in a mission to market Musalia Mudavadi's presidential ambitions. He added that Western Kenya is united under Mudavadi.
Looking at the events closely, it looks like Malala was trying to dilute Ruto's influence in the region. Malala is eyeing for the Kakamega gubernatorial seat where he will be facing Boni Khalwale of UDA party.
