Moses Wetangula speaks on wife beating claims for the first time

Bungoma Senator and Ford Kenya Party leader Moses Wetangula has for the first time spoken on claims that he was beaten by his wife.

Speaking in an interview with the Wicked Edition’s Dr. King’ori, the politician said that as an African man he understands that family is holy and sacred.

He went on to say because of that, he had never talked about what happened and he was still not going to talk about it.

I have never talked about it, I’m not about to talk about it. As an African man family is sacred and family is sacrosanct and family is family,” said the vocal Senator.

Wetangula allegedly beaten by wife

This comes a few years after it was alleged that the Bungoma Senator was battered by his wife identified as Ann Wetangula.

Media reported that Wetangula, then a CORD Co-principal had filed a case in February 2016 claiming to have suffered physical harm for allegedly being assaulted by his wife at their home in Karen.

According to the senator’s report, his wife accused him of infidelity before she became furious and attacked him.

It was also reported that Wetangula’s wife Ann had separately filed an assault case at the same police station against him.
