– William Kabogo competed viciously against Waititu to retain Kiambu gubernatorial seat in 2017.
– Kabogo lost to Waititu and has since then kept away from Kiambu politics, occasionally commenting on National politics.
– Waititu was impeached on Wednesday evening in a Senate vote and has since taken the battle to court.
Former Kiambu County Governor William Kabogo has spoken for the first time since his one-time political nemesis, Ferdinand Waititu, was kicked out of office by way of impeachment in a Senatorial vote on Wednesday evening.
Speaking during an interview with NTV, Kabogo stressed the fact that ‘choices have consequences’ and that Waititu had authored his own downfall. He explained that at the time of handing over the County leadership, he (Kabogo) had publicly left Waititu with a choice to either give life to the former’s campaign slogan “Kaba Kabogo” meaning Kabogo is the better option, or to render it irrelevant.
On the question of running for the seat again in 2022, Kabogo stated that it was too early to tell, saying he will make a determination when the election year approaches.
Kabogo was sent home with a wide vote margin during the 2017 general election, amid claims that he had issued statements amounting to disrespect for women on his campaign trail, allegations that he dismissed as cheap propaganda at the time.
