Confusion Within Ruto's Camp As Nelson Havi Openly Contradicts Kenya Kwanza's Position

United democratic alliance (UDA) party leader Dr William Samoei Ruto who is also the presidential candidate for the Kenya Kwanza alliance, and Azimio la umoja One Kenya coalition party presidential candidate Raila Odinga who also serves as the ODM party leader are in a close fight for influence as the country heads to the August general elections.

The two have been at loggerheads over several issues. On the preparedness of the independent electoral and boundaries commission, Ruto's Kenya Kwanza alliance have opposed any attempts to use the manual register in the polls while Raila Odinga's camp has openly advocated for the use of the register.

And now, former law society of Kenya president Nelson Havi has brewed confusion as to the level of harmony within the Kenya Kwanza alliance by declaring that there shall be no election in Westlands constituency should the IEBC not use the manual register.

Havi insisted that the law is very clear and provides for the use of both the manual and digital register and that he will not compromise on that, a hardline position that clearly goes against his party.

"We will have the two registers and if I go to a polling station without, there will be no election there," Havi said.
