Kenya: Mudavadi, Kalonzo Declare Support for Wetang'ula

Nasa principals Musalia Mudavadi and Kalonzo Musyoka on Friday issued a statement declaring their support for Moses Wetang'ula as Senate Minority Leader.

In a dispatch sent to newsroom, ANC party said the principals, including Moses Wetang'ula held a consultative meeting in Nairobi following the happenings in the Senate Thursday.

"The principals have reaffirmed their total confidence in Hon Wetang'ula as the official leader of the minority in Senate. Their support for Wetang'ula in this regard is unwavering," the statement read.

The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) wrote to Senate Speaker Ken Lusaka on Thursday seeking the removal of Ford Kenya's Moses Wetang'ula as the Leader of Minority.

The orange party wants Mr Wetang'ula replaced by Siaya Senator James Orengo.

Even though Speaker Lusaka ruled the meeting that resolved to have Mr Wetang'ula removed was valid, his removal would be suspended as the election of his replacement was unprocedural.

At the same time, a defiant Mr Wetang'ula Thursday declared that he is going nowhere, warning ODM to prepare for a "messy divorce".

"If you want a divorce, then you must be ready because it will be noisy, messy and it will not be easy," the Bungoma senator warned.
