Wetangula wanted me to pay Ksh8M for Ford Kenya ticket – Noah Wekesa
Former Kwanza constituency Member of Parliament Dr Noah Wekesa has revealed that FORD Kenya party leader, Moses Wetangula demanded eight million shillings from him to give him the party's ticket when he ran for the Trans Nzoia gubernatorial seat in 2013.
Speaking at a political rally in Kwanza, the former Forestry minister said the Bungoma senator sent his father and brother to his home but he didn't heed their demands.
"The issue of 8 million I'm telling you is not a lie; go ask him, he sent his father and his brother Fred who demanded 8 million shillings from me but I refused," Wekesa said.
Wekesa, a veteran politician said the revelation is not meant to malign Wetangula but is meant to make people know who the senator is.
"I am not saying this spoils Wetangula's name but saying who Wetangula is," Wekesa added.
He also took a swipe at Kiminini constituency Member of Parliament Chris Wamalwa saying he has been abusing elders and other political leaders who do not support his gubernatorial bid.
"That Chris Wamalwa has abused me an elder several times and I have got a bone to crack with him," Wekesa said.
Wekesa vowed to make sure Chris Wamalwa does not become the second Governor of the highly cosmopolitan county in the August 9 elections.
"Using abuses is not the best way to ask for votes from voters. I will make sure he does not ascend the county's top seat.
Rather, I will ensure George Natembeya becomes the Governor," he asserted.
