Former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale took to his heels a few minutes after showing up in Kibra’s Laini Saba. He was trying to make his way to YMCA Polling Station.

It is believed that the former lawmaker had turned up to show support for Jubilee candidate and flag bearer in Kibra by-elections McDonald Mariga.

In a video that surfaced online, Khalwale is seen scampering for safety with an angry mob coming after him.

Jubilee supporters acted as guard and protected him as he made his way out of the constituency.

Khalwale has been one of the most vocal supporters of McDonald Mariga, appearing in every press conference and rallies.

He changed his political stance and is now a staunch supporter of Deputy President William Ruto, from ODM’s Raila Odinga, with the pledge to deliver Western Kenya votes to jubilee come 2022 General Elections.

The Kibra race has been viewed as a supremacy contest between Odinga and DP Ruto.

Kibra has been viewed as Odinga’s ‘bedroom’ with Ruto labelled the visitor who has invaded it.

The by-election that has kicked on earlier today, November 7, will determine the outcome in the upcoming 2022 general elections, where Ruto is aiming the top seat.

This is after the death of Ken Okoth, who succumbed to cancer after a long time battle a few months ago.

The hotly contested seat has attracted 24 candidates, with five wards – Makina, Laini Saba, Sarang’ombe, Woodley/Kenyatta Golf Course and Lindi with 118,658 votes.
