- The two factions clashed as one side led by Isukha East MCA Farouk Machanje vowed to stop Bony Khalalwe from winning Kakamega governor seat in next year's election.
Chaos erupted in Kakamega town on Thursday morning following a press conference organized by Isukha Ward Member of County Assembly (MCA), who supports Deputy President William Ruto.
The two factions clashed as one side led by Isukha East MCA Farouk Machanje vowed to stop Bony Khalalwe from winning Kakamega governor seat in next year’s election.
They accuse Khalalwe of not giving the residents Ksh1 million that DP gave out to assist youth and women who do small scale businesses in the region.
“I’m here as the MCA of Isukha East, and we want Khalwale to come out and account for Ksh1million Ruto donated to help our youth and women,” he stated.
Machanje added that Khalwale was not best suited for the county top seat and asked Ruto to consider giving UDA ticket to another candidate.
“I’m asking my friend DP, kindly look for someone else and work with him for the Kakamega county gubernatorial race. Khalwale is a no. He is a political broker,” he added.
The press conference was forced to end prematurely as police were called to restore order.
