MPs vows to launch Wetangula's Presidential bid in Kakamega

23 March 2016, 09:18 Arap Yego

Kakamega - Leaders allied to Cord co-Principal and Ford Kenya party leader, Moses Wetang'ula have vowed to launch his presidential bid in Kakamega as scheduled.

Kakamega Senator, Bonny Khalwale and Kanduyi MP, Wafula Wamunyinyi on Tuesday led close to 10 legislators in telling off Governor Wycliffe Oparanya who has insisted that the launch cannot be held in his County.

Wetang'ula last weekend for the second time postponed a scheduled launch of his bid for the top job at Kakamega's Muliro Gardens.

Area Governor Oparanya who is also ODM's Deputy Party leader has vocally opposed the launch, asking the Senator to take the event to his Bungoma backyard.

"We do not take lightly attempts by Oparanya to obstruct Senator Wetang'ula from launching his presidential bid at Masinde Muliro Gardens in Kakamega. Oparanya should understand that Kenya has no room for obstructionist politics of the last century," said Khalwale at a media briefing in Parliament.

"For avoidance of doubt, we have booked and paid for the venue for the event on April 2, notified police and arrangements are in high gear," revealed Khalwale.

Wamunyinyi said Wetangula's fellow Cord co-principals; ODM party leader Raila Odinga and Wiper Party leader have confirmed attendance. 

Senators who were present included Henry Ole Ndiema (Trans-Nzoia) Judith Sijeny (nominated) and Daisy Kanaiza (nominated).

MPs who attended the press briefing were Eseli Simiyu (Tongaren), Chris Wamalwa (Kiminini), Ferdinand Wanyonyi (Kwanza), Suleimani Murunga (Kimilili), Michael Onyura (Butula) and Katib Mwashetani (Lungalunga).
