While addressing the press on Thursday morning, Wetangula dismissed aforementioned suspension orders affirming that they were hinged and propagated by his opponents (Kanduyi MP Wafula Wamunyinyi and Tongaren MP Eseli Simiyu) in Ford Kenya party.
“All legitimate Ford Kenya delegates across the country have been received the invite and are upbeat and ready to come. We want to assure that the party is strong and suited that there is only one NDC today (Thursday) at Bomas of Kenya” Wetangula said.
On the other hand, Wetangula’s rivals faction led by Hon Wamunyinyi and Hon Eseli confirmed that they had electronically received an order from PPDT suspending the two meetings until Crispinus Barasa’s case is heard on 15th November and determined.
“Arrangements for our were in high gear. We had secured and paid for the venue (Moi International Sports Centre – Kasarani). Though aggrieved by the decision, we will abide by the orders as we have previously done” Hon Eseli told the media at a hotel in Nairobi.
