Devolution CS Eugene Wamalwa has opened the door for Bungoma Senator and Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetangula to join Jubilee, saying he has come under increasing attack after the much-publicized handshake between the two leaders. Speaking during a funds drive at Narati secondary school in Tongaren, CS Wamalwa said they are puzzled to hear that some people are against the handshake between him and Wetangula, adding that some even opposed the handshake between president Uhuru Kenyatta and Raila Odinga.

He noted that Wetangula has carried the weight of the handshake, “We are hurt by the insults and threats that our Senator is being subjected to for supporting and devolving the handshake,” he said, adding that they will forge ahead with the handshake to other regions in Western.

“We started in Mabanga and we’ll head to Sibanga, Trans Nzoia. From there we will go to Kakamega, and someone should tell Malala we’ll be coming there. Then we’ll even go to Vihiga, Mudavadi’s turf,” added Wamalwa. He urged Wetangula to jump ship and move top Jubilee, “Let him come and not be tortured with the insults I’ve seen him wallowing through.”
