Bungoma Senator Moses Wetang’ula on Sunday said he is no longer interested in the Senate minority seat.
The Ford Kenya leader said he won’t attend the retreat proposed by NASA leader Raila Odinga.
Instead, he said he will “continue giving him small measured and calculated dosage to ensure he enjoys no comfort.”
He was speaking in Bungoma town accompanied by ANC leader Musalia Mudavadi.
The two declared that they will merge their two parties of ANC and Ford-Kenya to form a “Mulembe” party.
Wetang’ula narrated how a meeting convened by Raila on Thursday was reduced to his bashing spree.
“When we went for the Thursday meeting, I thought my party leader had wanted to bring truce, only to be reduced into a meeting of subjecting me into name calling and humiliation,’ he said.
Wetang’ula said during his entire bashing his co-principal Raila Odinga said nothing as he was being fried by senators.
He said this made him believe that Raila Odinga was behind his ouster.
“His silence showed a distinct message that my ouster was rehearsed and purely his deal,” he said.
The Ford Party leader said he had not bargained for the position of minority leader and was a decision arrived at by the summit in order to keep their parliamentary group together.
He termed the retreat called by Raila Odinga as useless and only aimed at castigating him and for that reason would not attend.
“That is like a goat going into a court of hyenas expecting justice,” he said
He said he will not take the position of minority leader even offered by the ODM party saying him and other co-principals had embarked on a grassroots campaign to popularize parties that will take care of smaller communities.
