Rivals Oparanya, Khalwale tussle on Twitter

The battle for Kakamega county’s gubernatorial seat in the August elections has spilled into social media, with leading candidates Boni Khalwale and Wycliffe Oparanya involved in exchange of words on Twitter.

On Wednesday, incumbent Oparanya, who is seeking a second and final term in office as per the constitution, accused Khalwale of ferrying people to his political rallies.

The tweet was accompanied by a picture of a lorry branded with Khalwale’s names.

Khalwale who is the area senator responded by claiming most of his “huge” rallies were spontaneous.

And he wasn’t done. Khalwale went ahead to accuse Oparanya of engaging in corruption.

Oparanya will be vying on an ODM ticket, whilst Khalwale flies the Ford-Kenya flag, in what is expected to be a closely fought battle.
