William Kabogo, the former governor of Kiambu County, and Mwangi Kiunjuri for the TSP party recently made resolute statements during rally raising conflicts in the party. Despite the ugly altercation, the leaders are yet to meet with the Alliance Principals. In an interview with KTN News, Kabogo asserts that he has forgotten the entire incident.
He asserts that despite letters being sent to Ruto, Wetang’ula and Mudavadi earlier, none of them had replied to his or Kuria’s request for an invitation to a meeting.
Kabogo claims that although he officially leaves the Kenya Kwanza coalition, he would not be joining any coalition before the August elections. He disclosed that he has set aside all the UDA-related concerns and is currently concentrating on the campaign for his governorship. Before the August elections, he claims he will urge residents of the Mt. Kenya region to cast their ballots for him and their preferred presidential candidates.
Mimi kule mlima Kenya niambia watu wanipigie kura niwe gavana wa Kiambu na pia watu wachague kiongozi bora. Kama vile kama utapigia kura Raila au Wajackoyah, pia mimi mnipigie,” Kabogo said.
Complaining about principals’ failure to invite them for a talk, Kabogo said that it’s only if you are invited is when you can meet your leaders. He said Kenya Kwanza Principals didn’t invite them to a meeting they sought by Kenya Kwanza. He disclosed that he has moved on.
Kabogo, Kuria, and Wamatangi are vying for the position of governor of Kiambu County in the Kenya Kwanza Alliance. They are vying for the seat against Wainaina Wjungle, an independent, and James Nyoro, a Jubilee member. Ahead of the August elections, leaders vying for various national seats are making every effort to win over voters’ hearts. Before the August elections, the Kenya Kwanza coalition, which Deputy President Ruto is leading, has faced challenges since several Mt. Kenya leaders have threatened to leave the alliance.
