Bungoma senator and FORD Kenya Party leader Moses Wetangula has declared his quest for presidency 2022.
Speaking at a Mass at Christ the King Catholic Church in Bungoma town, Wetang’ula said after Raila announced that he will not vie again, he is in a better position to replace him.
“I sacrificed my ambition to support Raila in the just-concluded election, despite having launched my presidential bid for the sake of opposition’s unity. I will be going for the top seat in the next Gneral Election,” he said.
Wetang’ula told the congregation he is ready to lead the country, having served in different capacities as an elected leader.
Amid his declaration, however, some critics say he has no power for the top seat and at the same time he lacks numbers.
His counterpart deputy party leader Bonny Khalwale, is supporting Deputy President William Ruto for the presidency.
Khalwale has been spotted on several occasions with DP Ruto and reports indicate that he is among Ruto’s 2022 top campaigners.
Kisumu branch vice-chairman Felix Minda said the delegates that endorsed Wetang’ula had no powers.
Other claims has portrayed Wetang’ula of running down the party and promoting tribalism.
FORD Kenya has 12 elected members of parliament, one senator and two governors.
