Will Uhuru succeed in splitting Western Kenya votes?

15 November 2015, 17:42 William Korir

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta's trip to Western Kenya will have gained him some small political leverage, but is it serious enough to help him in the 2017 General Election?

Uhuru's trip to western Kenya over the weekend was fruitful, with large crowds coming out to greet him and Deputy President William Ruto.

For some though, the trip was just necessary to help keep intact the President's image and nothing more.

They believe that getting a piece of the western Kenya vote block will only happen once the President covets one of the main leaders.

" I do not think Eugene Wamalwa presents the President with much to be honest. I think that he is not one of the major Luhya leaders and will not swing much in terms of votes," political sciences lecturer Jonah Wakholi told News24.

" The President needs one of the major leaders to come on board. He needs to look at the likes of Musalia Mudavadi or Moses Wetangula who have some political foundation," he added.

However, Bungoma Governor Kenneth Lusaka of the New Ford Kenya party who are allies to the President, thinks otherwise.

" The trip was a success as you saw and I am certain the President has a following in these parts as will be seen in the coming elections," he said.

It is understood that New Ford Kenya will be one of the parties absorbed to form the new Jubilee Alliance Party JAP.

CORD leader Raila Odinga is very popular in western Kenya and with Wetangula on board, makes his presence the biggest in the vote rich region.

Whether the trip will help him change that stance remains to be seen.
