Ford Kenya party leader, Moses Wetang’ula, has revealed plans that he will succeed NASA leader, Raila Odinga.
Speaking during a church service at Christ the King Catholic Church, Mr Wetang’ula said with the political retirement of NASA leader, Mr Odinga, he was ready to take up the mantle.

He said that he had sacrificed his presidential ambition for Odinga’s campaign and said he was better placed to take over.
“I let my ambition go in order to support Raila in the concluded elections and with his proclamation of not going for the top seat, I will go for it in 2022,” he said.
Wetang’ula launched his presidential bid in 2016 at Muliro Gardens in Kakamega but was forced to shelve his ambition and support Odinga under the NASA coalition.
Wetang’ula said with the experience he has gained over the years in elective politics, he was better placed to serve the country come the next General Election.
Wetang’ula further said that he will be offering his legal services to the NASA petition on President Uhuru Kenyatta’s reelection.
He said that the evidence they had showed that President Kenyatta had not won the election adding that he would actively participate and give direction to the team of lawyers handling the petition.
“They never won the just concluded elections. They rigged this election and the evidence we have presented is enough and we want justice to be done,” he said.
He said that they would also seek alternative methods to resolve the dispute should the court ruling not go in their favour.
