Sunday January 6, 2019-Kakamega Senator, Cleophas Malala, has accused his predecessor, Boni Khalwale of embarrassing the Luhya community by begging handouts from Deputy President William Ruto.
Last week, Khalwale was among thousands of Luhya community "tumbocrats” who trooped to Ruto’s home in Uasin Gishu County, to beg for handouts.
Now speaking on Saturday, Malala said Khalwale had reduced himself from being a doctor of medicine to a shameless beggar and house help at Ruto's home in Sugoi.
"A whole doctor of Medicine has become a beggar, always begging at the home of the DP in Sugoi. He has become a house help at William Ruto's home. Boni Khalwale you are shaming the people of Mulembe nation,” Malala said.
The outspoken senator went further to challenged Khalwale to resign from his party, Ford Kenya, if he insists on campaigning for Ruto.
Malala also attacked Sports Cabinet Secretary Rashid Echesa, whom he ridiculed for being linked to a human trafficking case.
Khalwale and Echesa are among several other politicians from the Western Kenya region who had expressed their interests in supporting and working with Ruto.
