Ford-Kenya party leader Moses Wetang'ula has criticized the recent tour by President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto to western region where they launched several projects.

The Bungoma Senator said Uhuru was using the projects to lure the Western Kenya electorate and other Kenyans to vote for him in the 2017 elections.

He claimed the President breached the law for initiating projects which have not been factored in the 2016-17 budget.

Wetangula urged the electorate to shun his agenda and instead vote out the Jubilee regime come 2017.

"It's unfortunate that the President is using non-existent projects to lure Kenyans into re-electing him come 2017. He should not cheat Kenyans when we all know that the said projects he's launching will never take off as they are not budgeted for in the current financial year," warned Wetangula.

On his part, Kakamega Senator Bonnie Khalwale slammed Uhuru's regime saying it has failed Kenyans.

Khalwale also criticised the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission's (IEBC) law on campaign funding saying it was a gateway for corruption.

"IEBC can't put a ceiling on the campaign budget of a governor at Sh500 million when the governor's salary is a mere Sh1 million. Where do you think the governor will recover the Sh440 million from, isn't that advocating for theft if public funds and resources?" posed Khalwale.

"The law is instilling theft of public funds," concluded the Kakamega County governor hopeful.

The duo held a series of rallies in the county where they also drummed up support for the county's gubernatorial aspirant and former Kitutu Masaba MP Mwacha Okioma in the 2017 elections.
