Wetang’ula stays put despite plot to have him ousted
21 October 2015, 10:48
Bungoma - Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang’ula says he is politically safe despite an attempt to have him removed from voters’ register over alleged voter bribery in the run-up to the 2013 polls.
Wetang’ula, who is also a Cord co-principal, said he has nothing to worry about since he did not bribe anybody.
“I did not bribe anybody and I am not a worried man because the case was closed. I am sitting pretty and looking at the future with a lot of confidence,” Wetang’ula stated.
He accused Jubilee of hatching the plot to have him removed from the voters’ register in order to weaken the Cord coalition.

“In politics, there are no coincidences. Foolish is the politician who doesn't see conspiracies. These are Jubilee maneuvers to undermine Cord.
“Since the last elections, people expected the three Cord Principals to part ways. We are going to hold our coalition together no matter what happens,” Wetang’ula said.
His remarks come after reports that the electoral commission allegedly wrote to the Speaker of the Senate through the Clerk asking him to commence the process of removing Wetang’ula from the voters register for alleged voter bribery.
Such a move would mean that Wetang’ula would be barred from vying for any political post.
Cord coalition members came to Wetang’ula’s defence following the reports, claiming the plot is aimed at killing his political career.
