Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula has been formally removed as the Ford Kenya party boss after the registrar of political parties gazettes a new party leader.

Registrar of Political Parties Ms Ann Nderitu, in a special gazette notice dated June 8, 2020, gave notice of Wetangula’s removal and replacement with Kanduyi Member of Parliament Athanas W. Wamunyinyi.

Ms Nderitu also recorded that the party’s National Organizing Secretary Chris Mandu Mandu had also been removed and replaced with Josephine Waungu.

“Any person with written submissions concerning the intended change by the political party shall within 7 days from the date herein deposit them with the Registrar of Political Parties,” read the notice.

Ford Kenya’s National Executive Council on May 31, 2020, resolved to dismiss Senator Wetangula as party leader on the grounds of gross misconduct.

While addressing the press after a delegates meeting, Secretary-General Eseli Simuyi said the party had lost its ideals under Wetangula’s leadership.

The removal of the party leader was witnessed by Bungoma Governor Wycliffe Wamangati who said the decision was informed by the need to better position the party ahead of the 2022 political showdown.
