Tuesday June 9, 2020 – Embattled Bungoma Senator, Moses Wetang’ula, has moved to court in a bid to stop his ouster as the Ford Kenya party leader.
On Monday, Registrar of Political Party, Anne Nderitu, confirmed that Wetangula has been removed as party leader and his place taken by Kanduyi MP, Wafula Wamunyinyi.
On Tuesday, Wetangula, through lawyer Eunice Lumallas, requested the court to stop Anne Nderitu from effecting changes at the party to recognize Wamunyinyi as the new party leader.
Wetang’ula alleged that there were people outside the party who orchestrated his illegal removal as the party leader and that he has credible information that his detractors have been well funded by the same external forces to destabilize Ford-Kenya.
He also accused Wamunyinyi and Tongaren MP, Eseli Simiyu, of using illegal means to oust him as the party leader and that any move by Ms Nderitu to accept the changes will be criminal.
