'2017 elections a contest between Uhuru and Raila'

29 January 2015, 16:00 Nesta Marley

Nairobi - Those eying the presidential seat in this country should stop wasting time and plan for 2022 because the next general election will be a heated contest between President Uhuru Kenyatta and CORD leader Raila Odinga, Kakamega governor Wycliffe Oparanya and Senator Boni Khalwale have advised.

In what seemed as an indirect attack on the UDF party leader, Musalia Mudavadi, the two leaders called aspirants from the Western region to consider joining the former Prime Minister because the region is firmly behind him.

Musalia Mudavadi has already shown interest in the 2017 presidential content, saying he has marshaled the support of the Luhya community and has now embarked on popularizing his candidature in the country.

“They are walking every corner of western region saying they want Luhyas to come together. This has now become an old song. Why do we always wait until elections are near to start singing the song again? We should plan for 2022,” said Oparanya.

He criticized presidential aspirants for campaigning only in Luhyaland instead of endearing themselves to the whole country.

“How will you win the seat when you are only campaigning in Kakamega and nobody knows you in Baringo or Pokot. Kakamega alone will never ever give you enough votes to win the presidency,” said Oparanya.

Khalwale said that even if he will have the backing of all Luhyas, the constitution clearly states that one must gain 50% plus one of all cast votes.

“To be the President, you need to enjoy the support of at least a third of the country. When I joined UDF and supported the Musalia Mudavadi, I never knew we were duped until after elections. We should not make that mistake again,” said Khalwale.

He urged Luhyas to work with leaders from communities that are ready to support other leaders.
