Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetangula has broken his in drop silence since the impeachment of Ferdinand Waititu. Wetangula has seen a barrage of social media attacks by ODM supporters for siding with the senators allied to DP William in voting against the impeachment of Waititu. Netizens accused Wetangula of being part of TangaTanga group supportive of William Ruto.

Wetangula defended the decision saying it is his constitutional right and he does not owe anybody an explanation on how he should vote. But what might be surprising is the Senator’s claim that he voted against Raila and not Waititu. He reiterated that his vote was a protest against the handshake which he says has divided Kenyans.

“I did not vote in support of Waititu. My vote was a protest against the BBi and handshake which has divided Kenyans. The BBI has balkanize Kenyans further along tribal and political lines”, he said.

“Even if a I voted in a particular way, it’s my constitutional right as the Senator of Bungoma county. What was being debated in the house was a political process, and not a legal process. You saw how senators were openly discussing the matter in public. Kenyan senators should learn a thing or two from the US”, he added.

Wetangula has been critical of the BBi and together with ANC party leader Musalia Mudavadi thrashed the report as Raila’s scheme to win Presidency in 2022. On the 18th of January during the Bukhungu stadium rally, Musalia and Wetangula made a last minute triumphant entry despite threatening to give the event a wide birth. The duo had accused Cotu Boss Francis Atwoli of planning to auction western region to the opposition leader Raila Odinga.

Musalia and Wetangula have been fronting for the ever elusive Luhya unity which they say will give the region a strong bargaining voice on national matters.
