Amani leader Musalia Mu­davadi will also head to Western this week­end, as Cord leader Raila Odinga and Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta at­tend ear­lier planned func­tions in the re­gion.

The pres­ence of the three po­lit­i­cal heavy weights woo­ing vot­ers in the re­gion is an in­di­ca­tion of the im­por­tance of the Luhya vote to the pres­i­den­tial race.

Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta was in Bun­goma county yes­ter­day to pre­side over the first grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony for Kibabii Univer­sity and visit the Pan Pa­per mills in We­buye.

“The Pres­i­dent will fin­ish his day’s busi­ness and fly back to Nairobi. He is plan­ning a full-week devel­op­ment tour of the re­gion soon,” Navakholo MP Em­manuel Wangwe said yes­ter­day.

Wangwe is part of the Ju­bilee Party cam­paign team in Western.

Raila will pre­side over the ODM Western Del­e­gates’ Con­ven­tion at Golf Ho­tel in Kakamega to­mor­row.

Mu­davadi will be in Bun­goma and Kakamega coun­ties. He will at­tend a funds drive for Lwan­dayi Sec­ondary School in Bun­goma to­mor­row and an­other fundraiser for Mt­ing’ong’o Friends’ Church in Malava, Kakamega, on Sun­day.

Mu­davadi is pop­u­lar­is­ing the Na­tional Su­per Al­liance, an out­fit to unite the op­po­si­tion to chal­lenge JP.

He has said that he is in talks with other op­po­si­tion lead­ers to unite.

Mu­davadi and Raila are sell­ing the need for a united op­po­si­tion in Western, a re­gion tra­di­tion­ally per­ceived as di­vided.
