Wetangula likely to run for Bungoma governor after sensing defeat.

Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) co-principals Raila Odinga, Kalonzo Musyoka and Moses Wetangula seem to pulling apart each day the country moves closer to the 2017 General Election.

The three have been jostling to be given the flag-bearer ticket and it is likely that those who will miss out will go their own way.

Wetangula, interestingly, has been pulling away from Kalonzo and Raila gradually as seen when he failed to attend a meeting between Raila and Kalonzo on Thursday, December 8.

The Bungoma senator, according to analysts, is the least popular among the three, and there is a likelihood that he will not get the ticket.

This explains why he is apparently eyeing the Bungoma gubernatorial seat in case he misses out.

Wetangula has reportedly presented his papers to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) ahead of the deadline so he doesn’t completely miss out from active politics in the next five years after 2017.

This means that the senator is likely to battle it out with Governor Ken Lusaka who folded his New Ford Kenya Party to form Jubilee Party.

Raila has also teamed up with Musalia Mudavadi, a move that is likely to push Wetangula further away.
