Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetang’ula has pleaded with Kabuchai constituency voters to vote for his candidate.
Wetang’ula said that he doesn’t want to be disappointed in his backyard where he controls massive support.
Speaking in Milembe village, Mukuyuni ward, Wetang’ula called on Kabuchai voters to elect the party candidate Majimbo Kalasinga so as to save his face from humiliation.
“My people I depend on you, elect Kalasinga to rejuvenate our party, why should outsiders come here to seek for election when you got your own party and people?,” he said.
He added, “It is only Kalasinga who can complete the projects started by the late James Mukwe, elect a development oriented leader,”.
Wetang’ula emphasized on the need of electing a known person who is better understands their problems rather than picking somebody who doesn’t understand their predicament.
“The deputy President William Ruto wants to see me humiliated in my bedroom by fielding a UDA candidate in Kabuchai, please don’t allow another man to approach you in your house,” he warned.
The Bungoma senator stated that almost all Bungoma Mps have been bought and are being used to humiliate him in his own backyard but he depends on voters for survival.
He asked them to vote for Kalasinga to help him initiate projects that are beneficial to voters.
He asked aspirants to campaign peaceful and avoid causing violence.”We want people to campaign with a lot of decorum, let’s shun violence and elect a leader who has the interest of his people at heart,” he said.
On his part Majimbo Kalasinga asked his rivals to embrace peace in their campaigns.
“Am calling on Kabuchai voters to elect me so that I can finish what was left behind by the late Mukwe, I worked with him and I knew what his interest was towards Kabuchai people,” said Majimbo.
Kabuchai and Matungu by-elections are slated for March 4, 2021.
