Forget about Ford Kenya leadership, Wangamati tells Wetangula

Bungoma governor Wycliffe Wangamati has told senator Wetangula his removal is a done deal; hence he should forget Ford Kenya leadership.

Speaking in Kimilili, the Bungoma governor asked Wetangula to accept the decision and move on instead of wasting time in court.

Last month, Mr. Wangamati and other members removed Wetangula as the Ford Kenya flag bearer.

“Senator Wetangula should understand that matters pertaining to Ford Kenya is a done and dusted deal. It’s time for him to take a back seat and allow other people to take charge,” said governor Wangamati.

Following the feud escalation, Wangamti said Wetangula used the same method to remove his predecessor Musikari Kombo.

Members justified the decision.

He added that members of Ford Kenya agreed on throwing out Wetangula since his ideologies no longer steered the party forward.

“I want to assure members of Ford Kenya that everything is in place,” added Mr. Wangamati.

He assured Ford Kenya members that they would revamp the party soon. Despite being in the same camp during the 2017 elections, the two fell out last year.

On May 31, a group led by Kanduyi’s MP Wafula Wamunyinyi, his Kiminini counterpart Eseli Simiyu, and Wangamati planned Wetangula’s coup.

In response, the Bungoma senator kicked the faction out of the party by calling them, renegades.

Dismissed coup

Wetangula further dismissed the coup, saying forces outside the party organized the entire plan.

He continues to point an accusing finger to ODM party leader Raila Odinga, COTU boss Francis Atwoli and Devolution CS Eugene Wamalwa.

Later, the senator moved to court, where he successfully blocked the move pending case determination and a scheduled hearing.

The presiding Judge James Makau will hear the matter on July 9. This comes after a team led by Wafula Wamunyinyi argued that the court didn’t have the authority to decide on the issue.
