Former Bumula MP Bifwoli Wakoli yesterday asked Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang’ula to drop his senatorial bid because he had been promised a slot in a Kenya Kwanza government.

Wakoli wondered why the Ford Kenya party leader was still vying for the Senate seat yet he had been promised the position of National Assembly Speaker if Deputy President William Ruto wins the presidential race.

Speaking in Bungoma town, Wakoli said Wetang’ula, who is also a Kenya Kwanza Alliance principal, should shelve his ambition and focus on campaigning for Ruto.

One seat

“Why is he sitting on one chair and putting his legs on another? He should choose to have one seat and leave the one for others,” Wakoli, a former assistant minister, said.

He argued that if Wetang’ula was confident that Kenya Kwanza would form the next government then he should focus on a national level and leave local politics.

“Wetang’ula should now go up and concentrate on national politics,” said Wakoli.

He said there was no way the Senator will be campaigning for Kenya Kwanza and at the same time thinking about how to defend his seat.
