“Ruto tuheshimiane” Senator Malala asks UDA boss to keep off Western Kenya politics

Cracks have emerged within the leadership of the Kenya Kwanza alliance after Kakamega Senator Cleophas Malala publicly questioned what he claimed was Deputy President William Ruto’s interference in the politics of the region.

Speaking at a rally in Kakamega on Wednesday, Malala asked Ruto not to allow his UDA party to field candidates in Western Kenya.

The Senator, who is now eyeing the governor seat, says they are determined to deliver the 70 percent of Western votes but said UDA fielding candidates in Kakamega and Western at large will affect their performance.

Mudavadi and Wetangula are expected to deliver  70 percent to get the chief cabinet secretary post and National Assembly speaker seats respectively.

They will also be given 30 per cent of cabinet seats.

“We have given you top seats please don’t interfere with our bedrooms,” Malala added.

Malala’s claims come a day after it emerged the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) will field a parliamentary candidate in Sabatia constituency, Mudavadi’s home turf.

ANC has demanded the withdrawal of Clement Siloya, the said candidate in favour of Alfred Agoi’s Mudavadi’s candidate.
