NA speaker Wetangula shares a light moment at Kasarani Stadium with fellow senator Speaker Kingi

Former Bungoma County Senator and new Speaker of the National Assembly Moses Wetangula arrived at the Moi International Sports Center Kasarani this morning to attend the inauguration ceremony of President-elect William Ruto and Vice President-elect Rigathi Gachagua. Wetangula was captured while sitting next to his Senate counterpart, Amason Kingi, the former governor of Kilifi County.

Wetangula, who is part of William Ruto's Kenya-Kwanza coalition, convincingly beat Kenneth Marende of the Azimio coalition to become Speaker of the 13th Kenyan Parliament. At the other end, Amason Kingi was the Senate Speaker's estimated winner after Kalonzo Musyoka withdrew from the race at the last minute and Azimio senators boycotted the election.

Moses Wetangula with his Ford Kenya Party helped William Ruto convincingly beat Raila Odinga in Bungoma County and garnered a significant number of votes in the western region. Amason Kingi, on the other hand, a former die-hard Raila Odinga, helped William Ruto garner more votes in the coastal region and specifically in Kilifi County.
