Bungoma - Ford Kenya party leader, Moses Wetang'ula has vowed that his journey to State House remains unstoppable.
Wetang'ula, who launched his presidential bid at Muliro Gardens in Kakamega a month ago said he will battle it out with President Uhuru Kenyatta on a Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) ticket.
"Let CORD leader Raila Odinga and Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka support my presidential bid because I am the only leader who can beat President Uhuru Kenyatta in the next general election," said Wetang'ula.
Speaking at Mayuba stadium in Sirisia town, Bungoma County, the CORD Co-Principal said he has the power and energy to unseat the current President.
"I am the only CORD leader who has the power and experience to wrestle the current leadership from power. Give me your support and you will see me in State house in 2017," he told the jubilant crowd.
The Senate minority leader accused the Jubilee administration of overseeing the most corrupt regime that has caused many Kenyans to suffer.

"The Jubilee administration is not interested in the empowerment of grassroot Kenyans but instead, it is perpetuating corruption of the highest order. We need a President who will save Kenyans instead of subjecting them to more suffering. Few leaders are enriching themselves at the expense of the majority poor," he said.
Wetang'ula also called for the disbandment of Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) saying its commissioners failed the integrity test.
"We want the electoral commissioners send packing because we in opposition do not believe they can conduct the next general election. They have messed up this country and we will carry on with our countrywide demonstrations until they move out of office," he said.
The Ford Kenya leader also warned Sirisia Mp, John Waluke against criticizing his presidential bid.
He accused Waluke of trying to sabotage his bid by calling him a Jubilee mole.
"I am not competing with Waluke. He is running to save his seat while I am battling to unseat President Kenyatta. Let him respect me and support my bid instead of insulting me in public places," he added.
Waluke, an ODM MP, has been a strong critic of Wetang'ula since the Ford Kenya leader announced his interest in the Presidency.
Kakamega Senator, Boni Khalwale on his part called on President Uhuru Kenyatta to disclose publicly the amount of money that pan paper was sold for.
Khalwale, who was also speaking at Mayuba stadium, said they appreciate the revival of the collapsed factory adding that they also want to know the figures so that Kenyans won't duped into allowing a few people to enrich themselves.
