This follows after Tongaren MP Dr Eseli Simiyu averred that he would support the former United Nations Conference on Trade And Development (UNCTAD) Secretary General Dr Mukhisa Kituyi 2022 presidential ambitions, a declaration which was inconsistent with Wetangula's position concerning 2022 elections.

While appearing on a TV Live show on Tuesday evening, Dr Eseli noted that Kenya was ripe for Dr Mukhisa's presidency because he had proven to be a performer. He cited Dr Mukhisa's tenure when he was the Minister of Trade and Industry in the retired president Mwai Kibaki's government as one of the instances where he made notable achievements.

Further, the popular lawmaker asserted that Dr Mukhisa's international business and development management experience would come in handy with the country's needs. He claimed that the former UNCTAD official would leverage his global entrepreneurial expertise in uplifting Kenya's economy.

According to him, Dr Mukhisa would run for presidency in 2022 using the FORD-Kenya party ticket.

"This is the time we need brains like Mukhisa Kituyi for Kenyans to benefit," said Dr Eseli.

Dr Eseli's move is a big blow to Wetangula because the latter has lost one of the formidable allies in his camp as he (Moses Wetangula) seeks to consolidate his base before declaring his 2022 political direction.

Last year, there were altercations in FORD-Kenya camp after a group led by Kanduyi MP Wafula Wamunyinyi and his Tongaren counterpart Dr Eseli Simiyu attempted to dethrone Bungoma senator Moses Wetangula from the party's leadership. The team also, went ahead to install Wamunyinyi as Wetangula's replacement.

However, Wetangula and his faction which comprised of Kiminini MP Dr Chris Wamalwa among others fought back and alleged that the senator was still firmly in charge of FORD-Kenya. Since then, it has not been clear whether Wetangula still had a firm grip over the party.
