Kakamega County is the second largest in Kenya after Nairobi. It clusters nine Luhya sub nations - Abisukha, Abidakho, Abawanga, Abamarama, Abatsotso, Abakabras, Abanyala ba Ndombi, Abasisha (Kisa) and Abatachoni - under one huge polity. This can be a source of strength as well as weakness as competing politicians try to outmanoeuvre each other with personalised attacks. Whatever the case, the stage is set for blistering battles for the control of finances under county governor and basking in national limelight as a Kakamega senator.
