Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula is optimistic that the NASA coalition will triumph in the forthcoming presidential election in October, saying after the court nullified President Uhuru Kenyatta’s victory Kenyans will vote for Raila Odinga.
Speaking in Webuye West constituency during the burial ceremony of the late Rachael Nasimiyu, Wetangula said Kenyans will be at liberty to choose their own leader saying there were several incidences where the law was not followed in the election exercise.
He said the Jubilee government is in panic mode claiming they have withdrawn IEBC chairman Chebukati’s security officers, saying it is a dangerous move.
The Senator said that Raila Odinga garnered 8 million votes while Uhuru Kenyatta got 7 million votes saying in the fresh polls Kenyans will vote overwhelmingly to change the country’s leadership.
Furthermore, he asserted that they will probe to establish how Rai paper mills was sold to a private investor and how much was acquired saying the initial value of the assets was Kshs 30 billion and how unfortunate it was sold at only Kshs 900 million.
“The assets of Panpaper included houses at the guest house Webuye, forest farms, and other houses in Muthaiga in Nairobi, and all leaders in Bungoma County are on the forefront to ensure that people of Bungoma County benefit,” he said.
The NASA co-principal said with the ongoing process of privatizing Nzoia sugar company, he has written to the Ministry of Agriculture to let Bungoma County government acquire its ownership and they’ll be paying the debts progressively.
He said he is optimistic of being the country’s next President while in NASA coalition given that Raila Odinga will only serve for five years and support leaders from the Western region.
However, Webuye West MP Dan Wanyama who was re-elected on a Jubilee ticket, pledged his support for the Jubilee government saying it is the only government that will be able to deliver the promises made as it has already demonstrated.
