Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula, who is also a co-principal in the National Super Alliance (NASA) said they are still intact in the umbrella despite not showing up during Raila Odinga’s swearing-in ceremony.
Wetangula, who was speaking during a burial ceremony of Vincent Furukha in Bukokholo Sirisia constituency said it was their strategy, citing that when family members go hunting, they won’t go in the same direction.
He reiterated that after the swearing in ceremony they held a meeting and have been holding summits to chatter the way forward for the coalition saying if they were apart they would not be working together.
Senator Wetangula who is also the minority leader in the senate said his ambition to ascend to the top seat in the country is still on course and called upon residents from Western Kenya to support him.
He rubbished claims that he is warming up to join Jubilee after failing to appear for the Raila swearing in ceremony saying he has opposed Jubilee’s way of governing. He added that NASA has still set its focus on dialogue. His sentiments were echoed by Bungoma Governor Wycliffe Wafula Wangamati who said as FORD Kenya, they are still part of NASA led by their party leader and will not be swayed either way.
Earlier Sirisia MP John Waluke had alluded that Wetangula had sensed that NASA leader Raila Odinga was leading his supporters the wrong way hence decided not to attend the ceremony and welcomed him to work with the government.
