Wetangula wants youth who disrupted ODM rally arrested

By Kennedy Epalat

CORD Co-Principal, Moses Wetangula, has condemned the recent disruption of a rally in Turkana County which was being addressed by his opposition colleague, Raila Odinga, by youths allegedly sponsored by a local politician and called for investigations into the incident.

Wetangula now wants Interior CS Joseph Nkaissery to ensure all the rowdy youth who disrupted the Friday rally in Turkana County are arrested and brought to book.

He further asked the government to boost security to all political aspirants as campaigns for the forthcoming August 8, general election intensify.

“We want to see Kenyans going to every part of Kenya and selling their policies freely” he said.

Addressing hundreds of his supporters in Malaba town, Wetangula also called for a probe into the murder of two politicians in Tiaty constituency with a view to bringing the culprits to book.

The Ford Kenya party leader who had taken his presidential campaign to Busia County called on Busia residents to register as voters.

He said NASA has set out strategies for identifying its flag bearer, who will be supported by all the four party leaders, Raila Odinga, Moses Wetangula, Kalonzo Musyoka and Musalia Mudavadi.

He assured Kenyans that once the opposition comes to power, it will declare free education from nursery to form four.

He was accompanied by Kanduyi MP Wafula Wamunyinyi and his Butula counterpart, Michael Onyura.

They paraded FORD Kenya aspirants for various positions who included activist Okiya Omutata who is eyeing the Senator’s seat.

Elsewhere, political realignments continue to take centre stage with Jomvu Parliamentary aspirant Karisa Nzai being the latest to ditch the Orange Democratic Party to join the ruling party Jubilee.

Various other aspirants are weighing theirs options before the general elections due in August.

Signs of Nzai jumping ship were written on the wall after he travelled to Nairobi last week where he is said to have met with top Jubilee officials  before  announcing his defection.

The aspirant was received by Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko, a close ally of President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto.

Nzai will battle it out with the current Member of Parliament Badi Twalib of Wiper party who is expected to decamp ODM.
