Newly-launched Democratic Action Party to back Raila in 2022 polls
Leaders allied to the newly formed Democratic Action Party of Kenya (DAP-K) held a series of popularisation rallies in Bungoma County on Thursday.
The leaders lashed out at Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetangula for failing to unite the Luhya nation.
DAP-K party leader Wafula Wamunyinyi and Defence Cabinet Secretary Eugene Wamalwa rallied their supporters to throw their weight behind Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party leader Raila Odinga and his Azimio la Umoja movement.
Wamalwa took a swipe at leaders opposed to his involvement in politics as a Cabinet Secretary.
“Tumekuwa kwa hiyo safari pamoja, tukafika mahali kwa sababu ya mahakama na ukora; dishonesty of the highest order. Nyinyi wenyewe mkauliza lazima tufanye uamuzi, tulifanya makosa kweli?” Posed Wamunyinyi, who is also the Kanduyi Member of Parliament.
“Tarehe 14 tukazindua hii chama iliyokuwa registered mwezi wa tano mwaka huu na vijana wetu hapa nyumbani, huyu ndugu yetu Eugene Wamalwa akiwa pia nyuma.”
CS Wamalwa, on his part, stated: “Leo nataka niseme kwa wale wanaosema ati Wamalwa anafanya siasa, I’m a political appointee wa Uhuru Kenyatta. Na kama rais ameona njia njema ni kujenga daraja ili nchi itulie, ni jukumu langu mimi nije hapa nyumbani tujenge hizo daraja.”
