“Our aim is to develop a common manifesto, agenda and platform for our campaign where we will discuss coming together as a strong third force.” – Ken Wafula, Daily Nation, 16 May 2017.
“Wetang’ula should respond to our grievances during the general council meeting in Thika. We also expect him to explain why he should be the Ford Kenya presidential candidate and lay strategies on the table. We doubt he is capable of flying the party’s flag.” – Ken Wafula, Standard Media, 20 November 2016.
“We are not saying that we are not supporting [Moses] Wetangula, what we don’t want is him to taking the party for a ride… If he is not ready, we are ready to nominate a candidate of our choice and campaign for him.” – Ken Wafula, Standard Media, 14 October 2016.
“All the witnesses are at risk… Those who testified in The Hague and those who chose to recant their statements; they are all being hunted down.” – Ken Wafula, The Guardian, 6 January 2015.
“I have an analogy that I have used before that if a village elder has received a complaint from one of the residents that a certain person stole his chicken and the village elder now begins formally to address the issue because that is some sort of a kangaroo court, and then one of the parties to the case starts insulting the village elder, the village elder is likely to enter into an irrational decision based on emotional anger.” – Ken Wafula, Daily Nation, 15 November 2018.
“I am one of those trying to help the deputy president get out of this; I think I have the magic that will remove him, and I know what I am doing.” – Ken Wafula, Daily Nation, 15 November 2018.
