Wetang’ula, Lusaka’s spat spills over to Twitter
An online battle has ensued in Bungoma to determine who is more corrupt between Senator Moses Wetang’ula and Governor Ken Lusaka.
The two leaders on Friday went at each other with unsavoury tweets to ridicule and discredit each other.
Mr Lusaka sparked the tiff with a tweet showing a goat keenly watching a TV set with a depiction of Mr Wetang’ula addressing the senate.

Hours later, Mr Wetangula replied the governor with a tweet of his own that read:
The Bungoma governor should be reminded in clear terms that theft and corruption are not careers but vices that must be exposed/ eliminated!

Mr Wetang’ula has recently been the butt of jokes in political circles. Last weekend, a hilarious video showing Deputy President William Ruto making unflattering comments about Mr Wetang’ula went viral.
