Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavi and Bungoma Senator Moses Wetangula on Saturday, January 18, made their entrance at Bukhungu Stadium, for the Building Bridges Meeting.

The two leaders arrived in a convoy, accompanied by some of their supporters while other leaders from the region were already seated, and ready for the meeting.

This contrasts their earlier stand where they had vowed to not attend the meeting, claiming that they had not received invitations and further planned to hold a parallel meeting, at the Nabongo Stadium in Mumias.

“My brother Wetangula and I have not received an invitation to the January 18 Bukhungu Meeting. Someone decided to invite us through social media,” said Mudavadi in statement last week.

Through a Facebook post, Gatundu South Member of Parliament Moses Kuria stated that Mumias East Member of Parliament Benjamin Washiali was missing.

“Majority Whip Hon Ben Washiali is missing,” read the post.
