Monday June 1, 2020 – Bungoma Senator, Moses Wetangula, has dismissed claims that he has been ousted as the Ford Kenya party leader.
Addressing journalists at the party’s headquarters on Sunday after the National Executive Council announced Kanduyi MP, Wafula Wamunyinyi, as the interim party leader, Wetangula said he can only be removed by party elections.
“A grouping calling themselves NEC members of this party, assembled in some five-star hotel, after airlifting some imposters from Kisumu and Mombasa.”
“People who are not NEC officials or members of this party and purported to make decisions of this party,” Wetangula said.
Wetangula described leaders who claimed to have ousted him as “errant members” who he vowed to discipline.
MPs Wamunyinyi, Eseli Simiyu (Tongaren) and Bungoma Governor, Wycliffe Wangamati, engineered Wetangula’s ouster.
They accused him of reneging on his mandate to unite the party, claims that he dismissed as “baseless”.
The two were assisted by Central Organisation of Trade Unions (COTU) Secretary General, Francis Atwoli, and National Super Alliance (NASA) leader, Raila Odinga.
