Goodbye OKA, Wetangula's Key Ally Bids Ford Kenya Farewell As He Joins Raila's ODM Today

The country's political discourse has plunged into a hive of party betrayals embroiled in bruise battles over regions' supremacy among the bigwig politicians ahead of 2022 general election.

Ford Kenya party head Moses Wetangula has been thrown back to the political drawing board after two influential and key drummers of Simba party manifestos announced their official exit from the party citing mistrusts from Wetangula's led faction.

Kanduyi MP Hon Wafula Wamunyinyi and the former Ford Kenya Secretary General Eseli Simiyu resolved to cool the rising temperatures of endless battles with Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula to race against time and defend their parliamentary seats in 2022.

"We have resolved we won't be held ransom by the court. As you all know, we are just about 250 days away from next year's election and this fights aren't helpful" Wamunyinyi said.

The two fierce Wetangula's rivals revealed that they will announce their new refuge home on 14th December 2021. However, Kanduyi MP Hon Wafula Wamunyinyi whose exit from Ford Kenya party spiked speculations of joining Defence Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa's Democratic Action Party - Kenya has finally settled in Raila Odinga's Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party.

Kanduyi legislator has officially declared to mount tents in Raila's ODM as a new political vehicle where he will chart his political career.

Speaking during the ODM's officials meeting on Monday, 6th December, 2021, the lawmaker faulted One Kenya Alliance (OKA) principal Moses Wetangula for allegedly destabilizing Ford Kenya party for personal interest.

"Baba ukitoka Ford Kenya ikasambaratika, tumejaribu kubadilisha viongozi wakuu lakini nikama tumelemewa na ndio maana nimesema nikuje hapa ODM" Wamunyinyi enticed the event.
