In Kakamega, fraternal animosity between the UDA and ANC factions is jeopardizing the Kenya Kwanza alliance's unity as members compete to popularize their politicians ahead of the August 9 elections. I 

If the UDA proceeds to campaign against Raila Odinga, Mumias East ANC parliamentary candidate David Wamatsi has promised to mobilize voters to vote for Azimio la Umoja One Kenya Coalition presidential candidate Raila Odinga.

Wamatsi said MP Ben Washiali and Senate hopeful Boni Khalwale should cease campaigning for UDA competitor David Mapwoni at a campaign rally in Shianda market on Tuesday.

"They should let Malala campaign for me like they did for Mapwoni." If they keep attacking Malala because of me, I'll advise all of my followers to join with Raila," Wamatsi stated.

"As a party, we've given up a lot of ground in this coalition." In this partnership, there is no presidential candidate or running mate. We won't sit here while our partners try to rob us of everything we have."

He claimed that if Malala campaigned for him, Washiali and Khalwale threatened to withdraw their support.

Malala pointed out that zoning could work against their win if their alliance relies on it.

"We need to work together as a team in Kenya Kwanza." Mr Malala stated, "If we keep going in this direction, we will lose this county to Azimio."

Despite the fact that each party has candidates running for numerous seats, he believes that voters should decide the fate of the individuals rather than parties in the same coalition fighting each other.

He was disappointed that the UDA was weakening the ANC in the Western area, to the point that it had produced a parliamentary candidate in Mr Mudavadi's Sabatia electorate.

Mr Malala added, "If this is the way to go, then our joining together is deceit."

The squabble between the three senior politicians is likely to deepen Kenya Kwanza campaigns in the region, which are currently aiming for a 70% vote target for Mr Mudavadi and his Ford Kenya counterpart Moses Wetang'ula in order to earn a 30% stake in the government if Dr Ruto is elected President.

Mr Malala is facing off with Azimio’s Fernandes Barasa under ODM, Suleiman Sumba (Kanu) and Samuel Omukoko (MDP) in the governor’s race.

In the Senate race are Mr Khalwale, Brian Lishenga (ODM) and Asha Ngaira (KANU).

Mr Khalwale and Mr Washiali have chosen to drum up support for UDA candidates against others in Dr Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza team.
