Big Boost For Wetangula After Top Kenyan Leader Hints At Working With Him Ahead Of 2022 Election

Senate Speaker Kenneth Lusaka has stated that he will work with all leaders, including those who played a role in his demise as governor of Bungoma.

He claimed that the burden of not forgiving was too great to bear and that it only served to further divide the community.

Lusaka is attempting to reclaim the seat he lost to Wycliffe Wangamati in 2017.

Despite their defeat, he claimed that God intended for him and Wetang'ula to work together, which is why they both ended up in the Senate.

Allies and critics have pressed Lusaka to reject Wetang'ula, with whom the Speaker has maintained a cordial relationship.

After the governor was involved in a failed coup attempt to depose him as Ford Kenya leader, Wetang'ula has led an onslaught against him.

Wetang'ula immediately began campaigning for Lusaka after the failed coup and promised Wangamati a run for his money in next year's election.

Lusaka stated that it was past time for the Luhya community to speak as one and invited all leaders to join hands.

"When we go bargaining as a community, we gain a lot more than when we go bargaining as individuals," he said.
