Wetang'ula: Jubilee plotting to weaken CORD
07 October 2013, 15:04
Nakuru - The former Senator for Bungoma, Moses Wetang'ula, on Sunday said that the tribulations he is currently facing will make him stronger.
Wetang'ula, whose election was nullified by the Bungoma High Court, said he is confident that he will emerge the winner in the forth coming by-election.
"It's normal for any leader to pass through such test and am sure I will emerge stronger when time comes to pass," he said.
The Ford Kenya leader was addressing the press in Nakuru after the party's meeting where elected representatives from all over the country met to strengthen the party.
He was accompanied by the Trans-nzoia Senator, Henry Ole Ndiema, and Tongaren MP, Eseli Simiyu, who is also the party's Secretary General.
Wetang'ula said his removal from the Senate by court was a move by the Jubilee government to divide opposition.
"The Jubilee government thought that CORD would disintegrate after the election but they are now threatened because we have remained united," he observed.
He said the people of Bungoma will have the mandate to elect their own leader and will not be influenced by outsiders.
Simiyu criticised the judgment that nullified the election of Wetang'ula saying that it was not fair.
Ndiema told the residents of Bungoma to remain firm in CORD and elect Wetang'ula since he was the co-principal in the CORD coalition.
"They want to ensure that all the CORD principals are out of Parliament and that is the reason they have targeted Wetang'ula who is also the minority leader in the Senate," he said.
