What Wetangula Was Doing Over The Weekend

The Forum for Restoration of Democracy (FORD) party leader Moses Masika Wetangula spent his weekend in company of a prominent person in Busia County.


On Sunday, Wetangula met with Kenya Pipeline Authority (KPA) General Director engineer Vincent Sidai in Machakusi village of Teso South. The duo held talks that are said to major on Sidai succeeding Busia governor Sospeter Ojaamong in the next year's general elections.

Photos that have surfaced on social media indicate Wetangula was given a cordial reception that culminated in partying. Local brew was also served in which the Bungoma senator seeped through a special pipe.

And as the Ojaamong succession heats up, Sidai is expected to face stiff competition from among others veteran politician Paul Otuoma. In 2013, the renowned engineer unsuccessfully tried to secure the seat but lost to the current governor.

Come next year, politics in the border county is likely to be based on ethnic arithmetic just like previous ones. As such, selection of the governor and running mate always strive in inclusion of Abaluhya and Teso ticket in a bid to woo voters across the whole county.
