Wetang'ula urges turnout, confident of victory

02 December 2013, 12:04

Bungoma - Bungoma senatorial candidate and CORD principal Moses Wetangula is confident of victory in the upcoming by elections.

The by elections are set to be held on December 19 but will be preceded by an appeal to the ruling to annul his March 2013 election win which is set for Tuesday.

That aside, Wetang'ula has been campaigning in Bungoma and has expressed his confidence in winning the by election.

Speaking at a rally in Webuye on Sunday, the CORD chief argued that he was the only man capable of doing a job for the people of Bungoma.

" I am in this to win it. I know that my supporters will back me and prove that I was legitimately elected, he said.

His rival Musikari Kombo had asked Wetang'ula to support him for the senatorial seat in exchange for his support in the 2017 presidential elections but Wetang'ula says that he is looking to now, not the future.

" Now is the time to make change. 2017 will come at its time, he said.

The three main front runners for the Bungoma Senatorial seat are Wetang'ula, Kombo and political analyst David Makali.
