As last week’s dramatic incident of GSU officers being pulled out of the DP’s residence and replaced by Administration Police personnel continues to roll out more consequences, with Interior CS Fred Matiang’I expected to answer to Parliament today, Ford Kenya party leader Moses Wetangula is also facing a change of guards, but under circumstances so different that it’s almost comical.
Wetangula faces the prospect of having his well-bred and microchipped German Shepherd dogs taken away and replaced with local breeds after he was accused of stealing them from a farmer.
James Isokat says he supplied the senator with well-trained and microchipped German shepherd dogs at his Karen residence on June 11, 2021, but the legislator has not paid him in full, and now threatens to take them.
He now says Wetangula’s move can only be likened to that of a brave thief and maintains that the politician has stolen from him (Isokat).
“Ameniibia mbwa zangu sababu tulielewana na hajanilipa (he has stolen my dogs because he has not kept his side of the bargain,” Isokat said.
According to an invoice, Wetangula was charged Ksh348,000 but this far, he has only paid ksh100,000.
Isokat says that he has used all means in a bid to compel Wetangula to pay the remaining amount but the senator has ‘blatantly’ refused.
“On June 11 this year Bungoma Senator ordered well-trained dogs and we delivered at his Karen residence, we charged him Sh348,100 but he only paid Sh100,000, the remaining was to be collected the following morning but he hasn’t paid up-to-date. He has been taking me around with numerous threats from his security guards,” Isokat said.
Isokat, who does his dog farming business in Nairobi, has since reported the matter to the Karen police station on 8/07/2021 and his case was booked in OB7A1N1N19/21.
According to audio clips, Wetangula is, at one point during their exchanges, heard saying that he won’t entertain James’ behavior of camping at his home and allegedly causing fracas.
Isokat has also said that he has written to the National Assembly and the Senate about the matter in a bid to get his money.
He also says he will file a case in court for him to be paid or being allowed to take back his dogs and sell them to a potential buyer.
“I want him to pay me and compensate for all the training I have done to his staff. I have tried all the means but he seems not ready to pay me,” Isokat said.
