The famous bullfighter and Former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale has not once proved to be a jerk of all trades who moves out of his way to find a political mileage with his recent defection from Ford Kenya’s top position to Deputy President William Ruto’s errand boy making the summary of it all.
On Saturday, Khalwale took the social media by storm when he posted a video of him leading a Luhya song in Kakamega in what he referred to as women leaders meeting.
He captioned it, “Today it was all song en dance when I met Navakholo women leaders. Thank u great women”.

His critics would however not let him be. They took the opportunity to renew their battle with the DP’s Western groundsman accusing him of stepping his political game too low.

They as well went on remind him that the women had attended the meeting for some handouts the same way he received some in exchange of Ruto’s loyalty arguing that his skills to move crowds won’t equate to garning heir vote.
It is one thing moving the crowd especially when you have to induce them with some handouts and another thing to turn them into votes, just ask @RailaOdinga . Wait until the results are announced after the 2022 elections then you’ll make sense out of this tweet

Contrary to the majority, Senior Counsel Ahmednassir Abdulahi who went on to praise Khalwale believes that he has a common touch with the ground that he can use for the benefit of his political mileage.
Daktari has the common touch…you can’t fake it…you can buy it…

The former legislator has since come out openly to campaign for Ruto’s 2022 presidential bid amid claims he is on the DP’s multimillion payroll is expected to vie for the Kakamega Gubernatorial seat in 2022.
