Wetang'ula a political baby, ODM MP says

Nairobi - Moses Wetang'ula is still a political baby, a CORD MP has said.
Busia Women Representative Florence Mutua says that the FORD Kenya leader is nowhere near the class required to compete with ODM leader Raila Odinga for the Presidential nomination come the 2017 elections.
She described the former Foreign Affairs Minister as a regional leader and urged him to first build his popularity before asking to be supported for the Presidency.
" Some leaders are not national leaders like Raila. They are more regional chiefs and cannot stand on their own in a national platform," she told News24 Tuesday in Nairobi.
" It is like a baby fighting to take over its father's seat in infancy. It cannot work," she stated.
She called on Wetang'ula to first prove himself before coming out to demand to be supported come 2017.
" Some of those who want to be endorsed are regional leaders and we don’t
know what they stand for. A party is just not an issue of winning two or
three seats and then you think you can match Raila, have ideologies
that people can believe in then people will believe in your party and
then yourself as a leader," she continued.
Wetang'ula has been busy popularising his Presidential bid, telling Raila to back him come 2017.
