Lusaka tells off Wetang'ula over wheelbarrow scam

21 September 2015, 10:28 Ben Wafula

Bungoma - Governor Kenneth Lusaka has criticized Senator Moses Wetang'ula over his allegations that he is a corrupt leader owing to the recent purchase of expensive wheelbarrows.

Speaking in Webuye over the weekend after meeting former councilors, Lusaka said he is a whistle-blower of the corrupt dealings that were taking place in the ministry of Agriculture.

"Wetang'ula should tell Kenyans between me and him who is more corrupt. He was implicated in the Tokyo embassy scandal and has been mentioned in other malpractices that Kenyans know very well. I have been in the civil service for years but nobody has implicated me in any scandal; why should I now be branded as a corrupt leader over the wheelbarrow saga?" posed Lusaka.

He castigated Wetang'ula for convening a rally at Posta grounds on Friday where various ODM and Ford Kenya leaders asked the County assembly to start the process of impeaching him for failing to stop the misappropriation claims in his government.

Lusaka said that leaders should respect each other by organizing indoor meetings to discuss the various issues affecting the County instead of calling for a public rally to incite the locals against his administration.

"The Friday rally was meant to belittle me and my administration but that won't stop me from discharging my duties. I was elected by many voters just like the Senator and he should not chest-thump thinking that he is senior in politics; we all stamp authority in the County," said an infuriated Lusaka.

The New Ford Kenya party leader called on his Ford Kenya counterpart to respects other elected leaders because they all represent the locals.

Lusaka further accused Wetang'ula of trying to get the County leadership through the backdoor.

Wetang'ula and other leaders allied to Coalition for Reforms and Democracy on Friday criticized Lusaka for failing to address corruption in his administration.

"We want Lusaka to explain to us how he has been spending money from the national Treasury because we are not seeing any tangible projects but only expensive wheelbarrows," said Wetang'ula
