Eugene Wamalwa behind plot to down Wetang'ula, CORD leaders say

01 November 2015, 10:32 William Korir

Nairobi - Eugene Wamalwa is to blame for the woes of CORD Co-Principal Moses Wetang'ula who could lose his Senate seat due to an incident of voter bribery, leaders from the Coalition say.

The irrigation services Cabinet Secretary is a known political foe of Wetang'ula thanks to his association with the breakaway New Ford Kenya which splintered out of the Bungoma Senator's Ford Kenya.

Wetang'ula could lose his seat over voter bribery if the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commision IEBC chooses to strike off his voters card which is the punishment for voter bribery which the Supreme Court found Wetang'ula guilty of during the 2013 General Elections.

But leaders in the coalition read mischief in the move, with Kakamega Senator Bonny Khalwale especially critical of Wamalwa.

He says that Wamalwa is the one stirring the pot of discontent about Wetang'ula and that he is to blame for the current issues.

" Eugene Wamalwa's fingerprints are clear in this case. We need to know why he is very interested in it," Khalwale told News24 on phone.

" He is the one pushing hard for the removal of Wetang'ula, as well as other pro-government leaders in the Luhya region," he added.

Wetang'ula risks a ten year ban from politics if he is stroked off the voters list by the IEBC following the gazzetement of the Supreme Court ruling by Senate Speaker Ekwe Ethuro last week.

CORD leaders have stated that they will protest as much as possible any efforts to have Wetang'ula's political future effectively killed by the IEBC.
