CORD candidate for the Bungoma by election Moses Wetangula yesterday responded to recent incessant attacks by UDF leader Musalia Mudavadi on the cord coaltion leadership including former prime minister Raila Odinga and Vice President Kalonzo Musyoka.
“I am not interested in engaging Mr.Â Mudavadi in proxy wars because he isÂ not in my political calibre andÂ doesn’t play in my league whatsoever, ” said Wetangula.
Mr Wetangula is campaigning to recapture the senate seat he lost through a successful petition by Hon Musikari Kombo.
Mudavadi accused former Prime Minister Raila Odinga who campaigned in the region for Hon Wetangula as working against ‘Luhya unity’ by accusing him of being a project of the Jubilee government.
Wetangula chose to respond to Mudavadi who has increased his attacks on the CORD coalition principals, including VP Kalonzo Musyoka
“Mr. Mudavadi has employed a tact ofÂ using his reckless and permanentlyÂ inebriated Personal Assistant whoÂ seems to be ever drunk on substanceÂ to hurl insults at the people heÂ imagines to be his political enemiesÂ including me,” said Wetangula.
“Who in this country doesn’t know thatÂ Mr. Mudavadi is a man who has beenÂ spoon-fed all the years in his nowÂ dwindling political career?” asked the former minority leader in senate.
“These desperate acts of a frustratedÂ and failed politician will not find himÂ any favour from the people of Kenya,Â no matter how much he tries to throwÂ mud at me,” added Wetangula.
Other contestants for the Bungoma senatorial seat includes journalist David Makali.
