Politician Moses Wetangula has been removed as FORD Kenya Party Leader on accounts of gross misconduct, moral impropriety and violation of the party’s constitution.
Ford Kenya had a special National Executive Council (NEC) meeting at Raddison Blu Hotel in Nairobi. It was led by Bungoma Governor Wycliffe Wangamati and the party’s Secretary General Dr Eseli Simiyu
The party accused Moses Wetangula of failing to be a symbol of national unity for the party and failing to champion the party’s campaign to win elections.
According to Ford Party, Wetangula had failed to champion the party’s campaign to unite the country. He also interfered with the party’s campaign to win 2017 elections. He also did not “provide inspiring leadership to the party” and was mentioned in the Dubai gold saga in 2019.
Ford Kenya Party’s Organizing Secretary Chris Mandu was also ousted.
Currently, Kanduyi MP Wafula Wamunyinyi has replaced Wetangula as leader of FORD party on an interim basis.
