Bungoma - There was drama at the home of Bungoma Senator, Moses Wetang'ula in Kanduyi when a Sirisia parliamentary aspirant, Moses Nandalwe who had ditched Ford Kenya, knelt before its party leader pledging loyalty and pleading to be accepted back.
Nandalwe had ditched Ford Kenya for Governor Kenneth Lusaka's New Ford Kenya party.
Nandalwe who was introduced to the masses by Kanduyi Mp Wafula Wamunyinyi and Tongaren Mp Eseli Simiyu pleaded for mercy and knelt before Wetang'ula saying that he had been misadvised by some political brokers to ditch the lion party.
"Your honour am pleading for mercy. Am a lost son and asking for your forgiveness. I will no longer disrespect you, am back and will always listen to you," he pleaded.
Nandalwe said that he fled New Ford Kenya after it was hawked to Jubilee alliance by its top officials.
"I love Governor Kenneth Lusaka but my conscience cannot allow me see it join Jubilee party; I cannot subscribe to its ideologies that is why I have decided to come back home where am used to. I'm a former detainee having fought for University students. My principles can't allow me to support the government that has failed," said Nandalwe.

He was received back by Ford Kenya Secretary General Eseli Simiyu and Bungoma FK chairman Wafula Wamunyinyi as the party leader Moses Wetang'ula also joined to receive him as the masses cheered.
Nandalwe, who is also an aide to the Central Organization of Trade Unions COTU Secretary General Francis Atwoli said that after being accepted back into Ford Kenya, he would vie for MP in Sirisia constituency. He is optimistic of beating ODM's John Waluke.
"Am the darling of the youth and the old alike and am optimistic of beating hands down Mr Waluke in the next general election owing to my closeness with the electorates and having secured employment to a number of them and initiated a number of development projects using my own funds."
The former National students' leader had contested the Sirisia Parliamentary elections and lost to John Waluke who has now announced war against the youthful aspirant.
Wetang'ula categorically accused some CORD leaders of working and dining with their enemies to frustrate their efforts of ascending to power in the next general elections.
"Some people like Waluke have gone to bed with Jubilee leaders and are doing business with Bukusu community, we will ... ensure we reach the house on the hill."
