Wateng'ula dismisses Ruto meeting report

27 January 2014, 10:48

Nairobi - Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang'ula, has denied allegations that he has been meeting with the Deputy President, William Ruto, in a bid to hatch out a so-called political union a head of the 2017 elections.

Wetangula is one of the core principals of the official opposition Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD).

He stated he would remain in CORD until 2017 and support the coalition in its opposition role and other agendas.

“Watu ya Mulembe, tafadhali, maragolis, bukusus (We must stop this, ukiwa mtu wa mulembe wewe ni mtu wa mulembe) People from western please, be it Maragolis, Bukusus or Abanyores we are still one, the people of peace,” said Wetangula while attending a church service at the Pentecostal Assemblies of God church in Nairobi.

Wetangula further called on Western communities to register as voters claiming it was the only way through which they could ascend one of their own to power.

“Kuna watu milioni moja na elfu mia saba wenye wana vipande na hawakuchukua kura, na  kuna watu milioni mbili wenye   wamefika umri wa miaka kumi na minane hawana vipande. Ukiongeza hao na uongeze wale 2.5 you will make million 6.2 million votes. (There are 1.7 million people who have identity cards but never registered as voters, and there are another 2 million who have attained the age of eighteen years and they don’t have identity cards. If you add those ones and add another 2.5 you will end up with 6.2 million votes),” added Wetangula.
