Bungoma County Senator, Moses Wetangula, has hit back at Prof. Makau Mutua over his recent remarks in which he dismissed Kalonzo Musyoka’s chances of defeating former premier Raila Odinga in the race to State House.
Mutua, in an interview on Wednesday, opined that Odinga’s political experience trumps that of the Wiper party boss and it is only logical that Kalonzo should support the ODM leader’s presidential bid and not the other way round.
According to Wetangula, despite holding a professor title, Mutua does not have enough political experience to chime in on matters of politics.
As such, the Ford Kenya party leader stated that Prof. Mutua should refrain from castigating Kalonzo for coming out to criticize Odinga for allegedly not keeping his promise to endorse him at this year’s elections.
“Huyo kijana anakutusi is a very junior lawyer. He was in the first year when I was in the third year and he has never had anything to distinguish him as a lawyer.
“Anyone can go back to America and come back calling himself a professor,” Wetangula said during a Kenya Kwanza alliance political rally held at Trans Nzoia County on Thursday.
Wetangula maintained that he will continue defending Kalonzo owing to his proven track record of leading the country as retired president Mwai Kibaki’s deputy.
