COTU boss Francis Atwoli has warned the Senator for Kakamega County Cleophas Malala to keep off the December 31 Bukhungu rally or face severe consequences! The rally in Kakamega is expected to be addressed by ODM party leader Raila Odinga in his bid for the Luhya vote.

Senator Malala had warned that he will make sure there would be no meeting held at Bukhungu stadium without the blessing of his party boss Musalia Mudavadi! But Atwoli warned saying “this boy I helped become senator” is pushing his luck and opening war fronts that he could not possibly contain. Atwoli further warned that there would be a massive deployment of both uniformed and plainclothes security personnel on the eve of the rally.

As Mr Atwoli tore into Senator Malala, the ANC trouble rouser, many political watchers have termed the One Kenya Alliance (OKA) to which Mudavadi belongs as a “paper tiger” which can only play a “marginal spoiler role” in the 2022 elections

He challenged Malala to stop misleading Musalia Mudavadi and that he should go ahead and stop the meeting “if he is man enough”. As Senator Malala keeps attacking former prime minister Odinga, the ANC boss Mudavadi is yet to respond to the planned meeting in his backyard.

Several angry Kenyans on local FM radio stations accused Malala of dragging ANC into his own “personal frustrations” claiming he only supported Mudavadi during the day but at night he “visits DP Ruto for handouts”! The planned Bukhungu meeting is expected to climax into Raila’s Azmio La Umoja as the four-time presidential contender eyes the critical block of support in the region that is still up for grabs.

Many western politics commentators and opinion pollsters have dismissed Musalia Mudavadi’s claim that he is the Luhya kingpin, his support in the region according to a respected pollster is pegged at a paltry 1 per cent! The pollster says that Raila Odinga is ahead in Busia, Vihiga, Bungoma and Trans Nzoia counties

As Mr Atwoli tore into Senator Malala, the ANC trouble rouser, many political watchers have termed the One Kenya Alliance (OKA) to which Mudavadi belongs as a “paper tiger” which can only play a “marginal spoiler role” in the 2022 elections. Atwoli has openly declared support for Mr Odinga waving Mr Mudavadi aside a man he once anointed as a Luhya spokesman at the same Bukhungu stadium. It will be interesting to see who carries the day in the turf war for Luhya votes as Odinga begins his no holds barred quest to become Kenya’s 5th president on his 5th attempt!
