Bungoma senator and Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetang’ula had a rough time trying to campaign for Kiminini MP Chris Wamalwa for governor seat on Wednesday in Trans Nzoia county.

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.

The governorship campaign in Trans Nzoia is being described as a two-horse battle between Natembeya, who is affiliated with the Azimio La Umoja movement, and Wamalwa, who is backed by the Kenya Kwanza Alliance.Raila Odinga of the ODM leads the Azimio movement, whereas Ruto is the de facto leader of the Kenya Kwanza Alliance. When Wetang’ula began supporting the Kiminini MP’s candidacy, a group of youngsters who had pitched a tent near the dais began chanting against him.

“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.
