The ground is set for an epic battle between ODM leader Raila Odinga and Deputy President William Ruto in the Msambweni by-election.
Orange Democratic Movement party team led Raila Odinga unveiled their candidate Omar Boga as reports emerged that Ruto is reportedly rallying other aspirants in the race to drop their bids in favour of independent candidate Feisal Abdalla Bader.
Speaking to electorates, Raila gave every indication that the battle for Msambweni will not be a walk in the park for Ruto.

“Those who have struggled must walk to reach the destination. ODM is championing the third liberation not only to change the governance, but to actualise the dreams of the forefathers,” the ODM leader said.
He said Ruto cannot be entrusted with overseeing a growing economy like Kenya.
“The reformers are known in this country. They have been part of the struggle for Kenya to be where it is today. But there are those who are known to divide what is meant for Kenyans and later share leftovers,” he said.
But Ruto has already hit the ground running to ensure his preferred candidate wins the Msambweni parliamentary seat.
Former senators Johnstone Muthama, Hassan Omar and Boni Khalwale are expected in Msambweni to seek support for a pro-Ruto candidate.
“Let Tangatanga camp here for as long as they want. We shall vanquish them and their local puppets,” Boga said.
