To show how serious the issue was, the former lawmaker said he could not vote for the Bungoma senator even to be a member of county assembly.
Having ruled out Moses Wetangula in the 2017 presidential race, Bifwoli said he would vote for President Uhuru Kenyatta. Uhuru appointed him a director at the Kenya Water Towers Agency in October 2015.
Moses Wetangula and his wife Ann Wetangula had, on February 21, accused each other of assault.
According to police records, Ann was the first to report the Senate minority leader. She filed her complaint at Lang’ata Police Station. She claimed to have been treated at Karen Hospital after sustaining injuries on both hands, chest and legs.

Police surgeon confirmed that Moses Wetangula sustained multiple soft tissue injuries. The surgeon said he had a swelling on the left side of his scalp and injuries on the chest, wrist, elbow and ankle which could have been caused by a blunt object.
The Lang’ata police officers are said to have transferred the issue to Karen Police Station as that is where the alleged incident took place.
A police officer at Karen said the investigations were yet to start as none of the complainants had recorded statements with them. They are yet to receive P3 forms detailing the alleged injuries from any of the two.
