Wetangula’s brother exposes him on Citizen TV over mistreatment

Wetangula's brother opens up on horrible experience

Senator Moses Wetangula

Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula’s younger brother Timothy Wanyonyi has revealed damning details of the mistreatment he suffered while working for the Ford-Kenya party leader who happens to be his elder brother.

In an interview with Citizen TV on Friday, 28 September 2019, Wanyonyi who is the Westlands MP revealed that his tribulations began in 1998 after he was shot at by armed gun men, an experience which saw him lose his ability to walk.

At the time of the shooting, Wanyonyi was working at Wetangula’s law firm and shortly afterwards, drastic actions were taken.

"In the office where I was working, they withdrew all my clients, they withdrew all the files. I could go to the office and sit there idly. For several days, in fact, for more than a year, I was in that office doing absolutely nothing," Wanyonyi revealed.

Wetangula would later allege that he took the drastic measures out of love, taking into considerations his brother’s mobility challenges.

"Later on when I confronted my employer, who was my elder brother, I expressed my frustration to him. He told me that he was protecting me from stress.

"I, however, informed him that his action was worse," narrated the MP.

In the candid interview with Citizen TV’s Lilian Muli, Wanyonyi disclosed that he vented out his frustrations by turning his anger on his wife who stood by him and supported him through the shattering experience.

"In the beginning, I was very hostile. I rescinded her and kept pushing her away but she did not give up encouraging me. I know she was also suffering," stated the lawmaker.

He later on went for counseling and overcame the challenges before opening his law firm and venturing into politics shortly afterwards.
