Wetang'ula urges unity in Western after poll success

20 December 2013, 14:20 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Newly re-elected Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang'ula has urged unity in Western politics after success in the just concluded by election.

Wetang'ula trounced Musikari Kombo, David Makali and Bifwoli Wakoli in the Thursday poll to regain his seat after losing it to a court appeal.

The election has left a bitter taste in the mouths of many thanks to the divisive campaign tactics used by the opponents during the campaign period.

Further, there were allegations of bribery and isolated incidences of violence on poll day.

There is also the burning issue of governor Ken Lusaka having backed the unsuccessful Kombo in the race, which has led to many observers wondering how Wetang'ula and the governor will work together.

Wetang'ula though has come out to urge Western Kenya leaders to come together as one force and ensure that the region develops to its potential.

He has also promised to put aside political affiliations in-order to help Bungoma grow.

" I thank the people of Bungoma for coming out to vote and for doing it in a peaceful manner. We have just seen democracy prevail and that is a testament to the people of the region, he said.

" It is important that we now move on and especially in the same direction because we all want to see an improved and prosperous Bungoma county.

" There have been many divisions and words said but I would like to urge all leaders to come together for the betterment of not just Bungoma but the whole Western Kenya region, he added.

Wetang'ula spoke in Kanduyi after meeting supporters celebrating his re-election to office.
