It came as a surprise rather when Isaac Ruto said he joined NASA and still said he is hoping to be a governer of Bomet as well despite being offered a rank in the NASA party if they happen to win in the coming general elections.
People started making fun of it and said that Ruto was playing safe with a multi bet well Wetangula is in to follow the path as well.
Its not clewar on whether they are in doubt of them winning that’s why they are playing safe with hoping to preserve their seats at different levels.
At a press conference in Bungoma Town, county secretary Peter Wakhuleka said that they had convinced Wetangula to vie “as there is no replacement who can fit in his shoes.”
“It is a sealed deal and we are going to present his name to the IEBC as an unopposed candidate,” he said.
Mr. Wakhuleka added that Wetangula would relinquish his seat if Nasa forms the next government, so that he can take the Deputy Premier position.
Analysts have concluded that the two would not want to subject themselves to a situation like Raila and Kalonzo have found themselves for 5 years. Should Uhuru win in August, they’ll still have political jobs.
