Underrate me at your own peril - Bifwoli

22 November 2013, 13:23 Arap Yego

Bungoma - Former Bumula MP, Bifwoli Wakoli, has exuded confidence in capturing the Bungoma senate seat and warned his rivals - who include the immediate former area Senator Moses Wetang’ula, former cabinet Minister Musikari Kombo and journalist David Makali - to underrate him at their own peril.

Speaking after receiving his official nomination certificate from the Independent Electoral And Boundaries Commission (IEBC) in Bungoma on Thursday, the maverick Former Lands Assistant Minister warned those viewing him as an underdog that they will be shocked when the results of the senatorial by-elections slated from December 19 are announced .

“It is said in our Luhyia community that the man you despise and undermine may just  turn out to be your mother's boyfriend. I said I will vie for the senatorial seat and many people did not take it seriously.  Many imagined I would not even be on the ballot. I am now firmly in the race and will conduct vigorous campaigns to ensure that I emerge the victor,” said Bifwoli, who before the 2013 general elections had expressed interest in vying for the presidency, only for him to chicken out.

Bifwoli said that he threw his hat to the ring to save the County residents from the negative effects of the political supremacy battles between the immediate former Senator Moses Wetang’ula and Former Cabinet Minister Musikari Kombo, which he noted has had detrimental effects in the development of the County.

He explained that he has tried to reconcile the two leader’s, whom he revealed are his close friends and relatives too, in vain and that has prompted him to gun for the seat.

“The bitter  wrangles between the Ford Kenya and New Ford Kenya parties of Wetang’ula and Kombo respectively has negatively affected development in Bungoma. My candidature will end all this,” said Bifwoli, who noted that first on his agenda when elected will be to revive the collapsed pan paper factory and other stalled industries in the County and also seek ways of improving academic standards in the County.
