A political outfit to be known as Ngoja Ngoja has been formed and the brains behind the new party are Bungoma governor Wycliffe Wangamati and his deputy Charles Ngome formerly a lecturer at Kenyatta University in Nairobi.
They said their main strategy is to ensure Ford-Kenya supporters are in next government with or without a presidential candidate.
They said because president Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader Raila Odinga were in the Kieleweke group and William Ruto in his Tanga Tanga outfit, the best option was to wait and see which one of the two is more popular and join it.
There were no details on whether and where the Ford-Kenya leader led by Senator Moses Wetang’ula had met them and decided to “wait”. The two urged members to support the force and ensure they are part and parcel of the government to be formed after the 2022 general election.
Wangamati and Ngome were speaking at Mjini Estate in Bungoma town during the launching of the Kanduyi-Musikoma dual carriageway which traverses the town and is estimated to cost Sh1.4billion.
The two spoke at the time when Wetang’ula hasd already been endorsed as party’s presidential candidate and the new development could mean he may opt out just the way he did in 2017 even after having launched presidential campaigns in Kakamega.
