Wetangula made a triumphant town in a convoy where he was joined by some of his allies in the region - sparking running battles with police in the otherwise quiet town of Bungoma.

Ironically, the Senator recently lost his own blood brother to Covid19, Tony Waswa and had advised Bungoma residents to take the coronavirus seriously and observe the government's safety guidelines.
