Moses Wetangula ousted as Ford Kenya party leader over gross misconduct
Ford Kenya Party’s National Executive Council has resolved to dismiss the party leader Moses Wetangula on ground of gross misconduct.
Wetangula has been replaced by Wafula Wamunyinyi as the interim party leader.
While addressing the press after delegates meeting, the party’s Secretary General Eseli Simuyi said the party had lost its ideals under Wetangula’s leadership.
The removal of the party leader was witnessed by Bungoma Governor Wycliffe Wamangati who said the decision was informed by the need to better position the party.
The move is also part of a realignment with Ford Kenya setting its sights on the 2022 political showdown.
Earlier in the day, a group of youth allied to Wetangula had stormed the NEC’s meeting claiming the party was being hijacked by ‘selfish individuals’ with ulterior motives.
They were however dismissed with the NEC voting to have the Wetangula- who previously said he would be a 2022 presidential candidate- bundled out.
Ford Kenya has been part of the NASA coalition alongside Raila Odinga’s ODM, Musalia Mudavadi’s ANC and Kalonzo Musyoka’s Wiper party.
