Wetangula Excited As Twitter Account Finally Verified And Boosted With Over 933k Followers

National Assembly Speaker Moses Wetangula's official Twitter account has finally been verified.The account, which boosts over 933,000 followers, got Twitter's verification blue badge on Saturday.

Wetangula made the announcement thereafter with excitement, coming barely three weeks after the former Bungoma Senator assumed his new role as Speaker of the National Assembly.

His predecessors are Sir Humphrey Slade (1967-1970), Fred Gideon Mbiti (1970-1988), Moses Arap Keino (1988-1991), Jonathan Arap Ng’eno (1991-1993), Francis Ole Kaparo (1993-2008), Kenneth Marende (2008-2013) and Justin Muturi (2013-2022).

Wetangula was on Thursday evening declared the winner of the speaker race after one round of voting.In the first round of voting, there was no clear winner as neither Wetangula nor Marende attained the two-thirds majority.

Prior to the voting, after the swearing-in of the MPs, Azimio-affiliated lawmakers had asked Clerk Kioko to disqualify Wetangula from the race, saying there was no evidence to prove he’d resigned as the Senator-elect for Bungoma County.
