The scramble for Kakamega gubernatorial seat between incumbent senator Cleophas Malala and Hon Boni Khalwale has been high with United Democratic Alliance followers associated with the later endorsing him for the position. The association of Cleophas Malala with the Deputy President William Samoei Ruto left many speculating about Khalwale's move ahead of August 9 general election. Khalwale was initially Odinga's close ally before ditching for Ruto.
The friendship seeking extended by Amani National Congress party leader Musalia Mudavadi left Kenyans guessing that he may consider coalition with UDA party which is among the most popular parties in the country.
The Deputy President in his various tours to Western Kenya to popularize his presidential bid, saw him convince the residents to to inform Musalia Mudavadi on his call for a coalition.
Khalwale today finally said that incase Musalia-Ruto coalition works well, he said that he will partner with the two leaders and will not dissociate himself from the rest of the gubernatorial aspirants.
