Deputy President William Ruto, Musalia Mudavadi, and Moses Masika Wetang'ula are expected any time from now to storm the venue at Bungoma county. The rally is being hosted at Posta Grounds as number of songs have been played in the event to entertain crowds and leaders who have already arrived for the meeting.

At Posta Grounds, Kalenjin Songs have been played severally especially those sang by renown Kalenjin musician Sweetstar despite the region being Mulembe Nation. It has not been easy for rallies organized for Ruto at those region to listened Kalenjin songs being played unlike for today.

One of the possible reasons why the Kalenjin songs were played and I think this is the main reason was due to the union of Deputy president William Ruto, Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetangula who hails from the Mulembe Nation. This may be a true reason since in all Ruto's rallies in the region, only songs from the region were played to entertain Ruto and his allies.

The other reason is to generally entertain the crowds, leaders who have stormed the venue. Normally before main guests arrived for the meeting, songs for entertainment are played to keep crowds in touch of the meeting and to make them not get bored and to be lovely.

Also, during the Nakuru rally on 26th of January 2022, both Kalenjin songs, Central Kenya songs and those of the Mulembe Nation were played. This was to show that those leaders have united and ready to do all things together. Just like Bungoma today, also songs from Mulembe and Mt. Kenya was played to entertain the mixed ethnic groups at the event.

However, several leaders have arrived for the meeting including the former Kakamega senator Boni Khalwale, Didmus Barasa, Oscar Sudi among many others.
