“We must now learn to unite. You have seen what happened in the Senate with the removal of my brother Wetang’ula,” he said.

He dismissed the meeting between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Mr Odinga on March 9.
He asked the community to rally behind Nasa and support the quest by ANC and Ford-Kenya to lead the opposition alliance.
“Our people were teargassed by the police here in Majengo and several others injured. No one has compensated them.
“Dialogue is not bad but we want a transparent and all-inclusive dialogue.
“The dialogue should involve the civil society, religious leaders, women, youth, politicians,” added Mr Mudavadi.
Wetang’ula who spoke in Mbale ,said they had returned to their backyard with a call for a united community after ODM stripped him of the leadership post in the Senate.
