Bungoma Senator, Moses Wetang’ula, has announced that he will be in the presidential ballot come 2022.
Speaking in Kisumu during the closing ceremony of the secondary school heads meeting from Bungoma County, Wetang’ula urged the National Super Alliance (NASA) principals to support him in his bid saying he has what it takes to lead this country.
The Ford Kenya leader further expressed optimism that the NASA co-principals will rally behind his candidature adding that he was ready to dialogue with them over his ambitions.
While insisting that the coalition remains strong, Wetang’ula was however keen to note that NASA co principals; Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka and Musalia Mudavadi remain to be equal partners.
The senator urged the people in the western region to rally behind him come 2022 and enable him dethrone Jubilee party from power.
Meanwhile, cracks within the national super alliance appear to be mounting with a section of opposition leaders calling on NASA leader Raila Odinga to retire from active politics and support youthful leaders.
In the latest pointer to a possible degeneration within the coalition, Kakamega Governor Wycliiffe Oparanya says it is time for elected opposition leaders to stop political rhetoric and concentrate on developing their respective regions.
Oparanya’s sentiments coming days after Ford Kenya deputy party leader Boni Khalwale jolted NASA over the events of January 30, terming the oath that Odinga took at Uhuru Park in Nairobi a non-issue. In Lurambi Constituency, area MP Bishop Titus Khamala also asked his colleagues in NASA to tone down their political rhetoric and focus on development.
The first time legislator said it is time for the leaders to work on their campaign promises rather than focusing their energy on fighting the ruling Jubilee regime.
