CORD co-principle and Bungoma senator Moses Wetangula a few hours ago (Thursday night 09/01/2014) survived what appears to have been an assassination attempt.
The shocking incident happened on Mbagathi Way as Wetangula was on his way to his Karen home. Several shots were fired from a car that was parked across the road. Miraculously all three occupants (the senator, his driver and an aide) in the car escaped unhurt. Wetangula was going to his Karen home from Jomo Kenyatta airport where he had just landed from Mombasa. The incident occurred at about 10:45 PM.
A shaken Wetangula described the incident as an assassination attempt.
The incident comes only days after a book on political predictions for this year released by Kumekucha described 2014 as the year of assassinations. Read more about that HERE.

"We’ve just left Kilimani Police Station where Senate Minority Leader Hon Moses Wetangula has recorded a statement accompanied by the Rt Hon Raila Odinga. Hon Wetangula had just arrived back in Nairobi from Mombasa. He’d landed at the JKIA where his car met him. They drove from the airport along Mombasa Road, past Nyayo Stadium round about to Mbagathi Way where they came across a parked car near the City Mortuary round about. As Hon Wetangula’s vehicle approached, one of the occupants of the parked vehicle opened fire. The bullets struck just above the driver’s side of the windscreen. The driver sped past the car and headed up Ngong Road where they stopped at a police road block to report the matter. They then proceeded to Kilimani Police Station where the Rt Hon met them after being hosted earlier on at the Churchill Show in Carnivore. The Prime Minister’s security detail has safely escorted Hon Wetangula to his home. No one was injured in the incident."
