Former Senator Boni Khalwale has dropped his bid for the Kakamega gubernatorial seat. Khalwale said he has decided to support Cleophas Malala to run for the seat under UDA ticket. Khalwale further stated that he is going to vie for the Senate seat instead.
Kenyans who received the news are already reacting. Some of them think Boni took a bold move and one that would keep UDA united and working, while others think Khalwale has been misadvised and he is not sure of what he wants politically.
Reaction from Kenyans
Martin Jeremy Mureithi It’s not about dropping his ambition in favor of someone, it’s all about being reasonable… The record this guy had in Ikolomani I highly doubt it qualifies him to manage County resources… Senate maeb, atleast he is good in making noise… All the best bull fighter.. I know you very well
Nyakundi Jeremiah There is nothing like consultations. Khalwale knew that he will not defeat Cleopas. To avoid embarrassment Khalwale has dropped his bid for election as Governor.

Vallary Ke I still repeat it, UDA never ceases to amaze me with sideshows, see them now, mmmmh! Full of comedians, A strong opposition in waiting.
Humphrey Ndekerere Malala’s bid for governor is nothing but a daydream under the hot sun in Luanda Magere’s backyard. As much as Lupita taught us that dreams are valid, some people need to be woken up before they wet their beds.
Felix Mmboyi Sometimes making unnecessary political noise pays off. Malala is being offered the gobernatorial chance to silence so that he does not “rock the boat”. But a rapture is still underway in Kenya Kwanza very soon
Kiberenge Khwa Masafu A very very good move by the senator. Indeed we needed Khalwale at the national level. Local politics has retired so many good leaders including Nanok and Oparanya at the wrong time.
