Political analyst Ambrose Weda has questioned former Kakamega Senator Boni Khalwale's sudden change of heart regarding Deputy President William Ruto.
The vocal politician who was initially a renowned anti-Ruto campaigner has since crossed over and has even vowed to lead the DP's 2022 presidential campaigns in Western Kenya.
However, speaking on Wednesday, Weda said that the sudden bromance between the two might not be natural, judging by its abruptness noting that it must have been financially motivated.
"Khalwale called President Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto names in 2017, what has changed? It might be some money or the money he sees in Ruto," he said.
Weda who doubles up as a High Court advocate was speaking on KBC English Service's The Big Conversation show on Wednesday.
He took issues with Khalwale's remarks over the weekend about the alleged reduction of the security detail for politicians allied to the DP.
The former Kakamega gubernatorial aspirant warned that such might trigger national wrangles, as was witnessed in Rwanda during the genocide.
Weda though, bashed him noting that leaders should be very careful with whatever they are giving out to the people in their speeches.
"Let leaders be very calculated when speaking. You cannot compare us with Rwanda as we are more steady and have more communities. Let people not take us there," he cautioned.
Khalwale has since turned against his fellow Western Kenya leaders opposed to the DP telling them that the region will vote overwhelmingly for Ruto.
