Former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale has called former Sports cabinet secretary Rashid Echesa’s decision to ditch William Ruto’s camp an attention-seeking stunt.
Khalwale further claimed that Echesa might be harboring ill feelings over his abrupt firing as Sports Cabinet Secretary.
Khalwale was however trolled over the remarks as a section of Echesa supporters called him a hindrance to the unification of the Luhya nation.
Echesa over the weekend announced that he is now supporting ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi’s 2022 presidential bid.
While speaking at a funeral, the former sports CS who is considered DP Ruto’s ally, stated that Mudavadi is the most popular leader in Western Kenya, urging other leaders to support him as well.
