Deputy President William Ruto has suffered a major blow after Bungoma Deputy Governor Charles Kibanani Ngome ditched the United Democratic Party (UDA) and reunited with his boss Governor Wycliffe Wangamati in Democratic Action Party of Kenya (DAP-K).
Speaking at the party’s headquarters at Chui house, Professor Ngome noted that the invasion of Moses Wetang’ula’s Ford Kenya in UDA has caused havoc and confusion.
“I joined UDA so that I can unseat Wetang’ula from the senatorial seat but Ford Kenya uniting with UDA brought confusion in the party since I was told that Wetang’ula is my boss. How can my boss be the same person that I am competing with? It doesn’t make sense,” he said.
Ngome went ahead to say that he is so focused to oust Wetang’ula and it should be known to him that as much as he joined UDA, he is not going to step down to pave way for him and instead he is coming on DAP-K party and come 9th of August, the people of Bungoma will decide.
“Why can’t Wetang’ula emulate his counterpart Mudavadi, he is aiming higher positions and not vying for any seat but for him, he is busy vying for the same seat over and over again,” he said.
This also comes after Ngome being at loggerheads with his boss on what was termed as frustrations in his office but it is a reprieve for Wangamati as they now reunite under one party pulling their weight behind each other.
Ngome was welcomed by the DAP-K party leader Wafula Wamunyinyi and the party patron Eugine Wamalwa.
