Sirisia MP John Waluke says he left the Kenya Kwanza Alliance for Azimio la Umoja because he was not comfortable working with Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetang’ula
Waluke officially stepped out on April 10 to campaign for Azimio and its Presidential candidate and ODM Party Leader Raila Amollo Odinga weeks after he decamped from UDA.
Speaking at Sinoko PEFA Church in Maraka Ward in Webuye East Sub constituency, Waluke said he switched camps as he could not work with Wetang’ula in the same political formation.
The MP said he will now divert his energies to selling Azimio and Raila’s agenda in Western region.
‘Raila is the next President of this country, I was appointed by Odinga to lead Azimio campaigns in the entire Western region and I will deliver as agreed,” Waluke said.
“I am very clear about my choices and this time, I have chosen to work with President Uhuru and Raila Amollo Odinga,” he said.
Waluke faulted Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetang’ula for imposing the senate speaker Kenneth Lusaka on Bungoma people, while calling for his rejection, as he will not achieve anything as a second term governor, having done nothing during his first term.
He added that Lusaka could have focused on the top seat in the country rather than coming back to Bungoma to seek a second stint as the governor.
“I would have drummed up support for speaker Lusaka if only he could have focused on a higher seat in the country, but because he has come back to cause confusion and disturb the current governor Wycliffe Wangamati I won’t support him,” he said.
The MP asked Bungoma residents to retain Wangamati because he has done fairly well compared to Lusaka’term, where no development was realised.
“Let us support Wangamati’s re-election because he has promised to double his efforts if given the second chance as the county boss,” Waluke stated.
Speaking at the same event, Wangamati called for peaceful elections come August 9, saying that Kenya must exist beyond 2022.
“I call upon the clergy to pray for all of us and to pray for the peace of this country,” he said, adding that leaders and Kenyans have a responsibility to keep peace and protect Kenya.
Defence CS Eugene Wamalwa lauded Wangamati for his unmatched development record and urged residents to re-elect him.
