Bungoma Senator, Moses Wetangula is on the spot for allegedly mistreating his disabled younger brother, Timothy Wanyonyi. Wanyonyi is the Westlands MP who lost his ability to walk after he was shot by carjackers in 1998.
Speaking on Citizen TV, on Friday, September 28, revealed that being a law degree holder, he worked at his elder brother’s law firm, Wetangula and Company Advocates.
“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 emotionally recalled.
The legislator took up the matter with Wetangula, who insisted that he resorted to the measure out of love.
“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,” he recounted.
The frustrations at work made the ODM MP vent by projecting his stress to his wife- being hostile towards her.
“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 I rescinded her and kept pushing her away but she did not give up encouraging me.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,” Wanyonyi narrated to Citizen TV’s Lillian Muli.
Wanyonyi later went for counselling in Belgium which gave him a new perspective to life and went along to open his own law firm. He then entered politics.
