NASA Co-principal Moses Wetang’ula has stated that he will succeed the party’s leader Raila Odinga.

Speaking during a church service at Christ the King Catholic Church in Bungoma town, Mr Wetang'ula said he will vie for the presidency in 2022 after the ODM leader makes his retirement plans public.

Wetangula said that he was better suited to take over the Opposition leader, noting how he had sacrificed his presidential ambition for Odinga's campaign.

"I sacrificed my ambition to support Raila in the just concluded elections for the sake of opposition's unity. This was despite having launched my presidential bid."

"But because he won’t vie for the bigger seat, I will go for it in 2022," Wetang'ula said.

Wetang'ula launched his presidential bid in 2016 at Muliro Gardens in Kakamega but was forced to shelve his ambition and support Odinga under the NASA coalition.

He told the congregation that he is ripe to lead the country in 2022 having served in different capacities as an elected leader and cabinet minister.

At the same time, the Ford Party leader he will be offering his legal services to the NASA petition on President Uhuru Kenyatta's reelection.

He said that the evidence they had showed that President Kenyatta had not won the election adding that he would actively participate and give direction to the team of lawyers handling the petition.

"They never won the just concluded elections. They rigged this election and the evidence we have presented is enough and we want justice to be done," he said.
