The situation in Kakamega County may not be ideal for former senator Boni Khalwale, who is once again vying to become the next senator after stepping down for current senator Cleophas Malala following negotiations by William Ruto.
However, while campaigning for his ambitions today, Khalwale encountered some rowdy youths who made it difficult for his motorcade to stop and make an address or even greet them.
The crowd yelled at him, telling him he had to leave because people were throwing leaves at his car. Instead, they voted for Khalwale’s opponent.
“Khalwale must go, Khalwale must go,” they said. “We, the Kakamega youths, have decided that we want sichenga, not Khalwale.”
This came after Khalwale told residents that they should vote for anyone they like and who will work for them if elected.
Kakamega county has become a major battleground for the azimio la umoja one Kenya alliance and the Kenya kwanza alliance.
