On Wednesday in Trans Nzoia county, Bungoma senator and Ford Kenya party head Moses Wetang’ula had a difficult time campaigning for Kiminini MP Chris Wamalwa for governor. Wetang’ula was greeted with pro-George Natembeya slogans while speaking at a gathering attended by deputy president William Ruto, ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi, and numerous Kenya Kwanza allies.
“Chris must go! Chris must go! Chris must go!” they chanted, effectively halting the rally’s speaker period. Wetang’ula’s efforts to soothe the enraged youth proved to be unsuccessful, as they continued to shout for some time until the Ford Kenya leader changed his topic of talk.The DAP-K party, which is wrestling with Ford Kenya for the control of Luhya nation, welcomed the development saying residents had delivered the message “home”.
“Trans Nzoia County is home to peace-loving citizens who are tired of politics of lies, deceit, corruption and lack of development in the 10 years of Ford Kenya regime. The message is home. Tunatembea na Natembeya,” the party stated.The Kenya Kwanza brigade was on a charm offensive in Trans Nzoia county in a bid to rally residents to back their team come August 9, polls.The team has been in the Western region for the last three days wooing the Luhya nation to back their camp.
