Eugene Wamalwa locks CORD leaders out of Uhuru Western Kenya trip

15 November 2015, 10:57 William Korir

Nairobi - Water and Irrigation CS Eugene Wamalwa would not have any senior CORD leaders attend President Uhuru Kenyatta's trip to the western Kenya region as a show of might.

It is understood that Wamalwa handled the planning of the trip with a firm grip and stopped any mention of senior CORD leaders coming in at the very beginning.

None of the senior CORD leaders from the two counties, Kakamega and Bungoma were invited.

" There was no laughing about. It was Eugene's time to shine and he did it. He locked all of them out," an aide of the CS told News24.

Kakamega Senator Bonny Khalwale claimed that he had not been invited while Bungoma Senator and de-facto Luhya kingpin Moses Wetang'ula also gave the trip a wide berth.

" Eugene Wamalwa has been doing his best to try sideline Luhya leaders but he will not succeed," Khalwale said of being locked out of the event.

Political analysts from the region however, see no change as regards Wamalwa's position in the Luhya political tree, saying he has already been castigated as a traitor by many in the region.

" I see no change for Wamalwa because many feel that he is the impediment to Luhya unity," Francis Wanaswa, a political sciences lecturer in Kakamega told News24.

" He is not trusted and that is a serious issue for him. I am not sure he can deliver what the President requires of him. It is highly unlikely," he added.

Uhuru is in Kisumu today before heading to the North Rift for the final day of his three day tour.
