Vihiga leaders condemn Wetangula for insulting Mudavadi

18 February 2014, 18:55 Dareel Eric

Vihiga - Vihiga MP Yusuf Chanzu has warned western leaders against divisive politics as they cheat for unity of the region.

Chanzu said that it was unfortunate that leaders who lack proper development agenda for the region were spreading propaganda with intent of causing further rifts.

“Western leaders, it seems are idle and have no development agenda on their tables, and that is why they are busy walking in every county abusing their seniors. How will the society unite if these leaders cannot come together over simple things and instead spread rumours? he asked.

Chanzu was responding to the recent claims by Bungoma senator Moses Wetangula in Vihiga where he said that Mudavadi was not the best person to be entrusted with the Luhya leadership.

Wetangula further claimed that Mudavadi was begging President Uhuru Kenyatta for a job, prompting the United Democratic Front party county reps to march out on him, as he added that he was the only person who was fit to unite the region because he commands enough  respect amongst the people.

Chanzu however, said that Wetangula would be a miserable Luhya leader if at all he is granted the kingship.

“Wetangula has never won an election, even in his own constituency for all these years. How then can he claim that he can unite the whole of Luhya? He should think twice before coming to Vihiga to abuse Musalia,” he said.  

His Sabatia counterpart, Alfred Agoi, echoed the same sentiments saying that abusing each other instead of looking for ways of helping the people will not go on well with the Luhya leaders.

Agoi said that the marching out by the county reps on Wetangula served him right and he risked inciting the crowd into violence for unnecessarily abusing Mudavadi.

“We are not encouraging leaders to come to the others’ homesteads and abuse them. What if the crowd had reacted angrily and started acting violently? Our leaders should learn to look for amicable ways of calling for Luhya unity,” Agoi said.
