Vihiga - Vihiga Governor Moses Akaranga is on the spot for saying Western leaders will support Uhuru Kenyatta in 2017.
Akaranga has on several occasions said he will support Amani National Congress party leader Musalia Mudavadi.
Akaranga’s remarks while in Nairobi after visiting the Office of the President at Harambee House have angered residents who say he has been cheating them.
“Why can't our Governor have some stand? While here, he says he is supporting Mudavadi. While in Nairobi, it is a different story,” said Hebron Ludavi.
There were speculations that Akaranga’s party would join Mudavadi’s party to form a formidable force ahead of the 2017 elections.

Akaranga and Mudavadi, both from Sabatia Constituency, have been political nemesis for many years.
Akaranga, alongside Bungoma Governor Kenneth Lusaka and over 15 legislators from Western region visited the President’s office and pledged to support Jubilee.
The leaders said they will support CS Eugene Wamalwa’s bid for Nairobi gubernatorial race.
Residents concluded that Akaranga could have dissolved his Progressive Party of Kenya (PPK) to join Jubilee party after Lusaka dissolved New Ford Kenya two weeks ago.
