Registrar of Political Parties has gazetted Athana Wafula Wamunyinyi as new Ford Kenya Party leader.
In the Kenya Gazette Notice No. 3893 on Vol. CXXII-No. 106 dated 8th June, 2020, Ann Nderitu, Registrar of Political Parties stated that any person with written submissions concerning the intended changes including Josephine Maungu as FKP Organizing Secretary replacing Chris Mandu should deposit it within 7 days.
This came as the rising political temperatures in the country take toll with Jubilee Party let by President Uhuru Kenyatta tries to align its leadership after the split to two sections, Kieleweke and Tanga Tanga.
Moses Wetangula was recently bolt out of the party leadership by a section of leaders allied to Wamunyinyi but later restored his chairmanship accusing ODM Party Leader Raila Odinga helping his critics divide his party saying the other section were selfish people who wanted to use the party to enrich themselves.
The big question is, will Wetangula succeed in fight to retain his seat?
