Kiambu governor William Kabogo has accused Deputy President William Ruto of dishing out millions of shillings at Jubilee headquarters to ensure that he did not clinch the Jubilee ticket for Kiambu governor.
Kabogo told the Star that he had evidence to his claims, adding that people at the Jubilee headquarters told him all sort of things.
"We saw so and so receiving money from a black Mercedes Benz at Jubilee headquarters. They would go to a hotel and plan how to rig and the people who were planning mentioned the DP's name. I have a recording of the same," he said.
Kabogo accused the deputy president of imposing leaders on people adding that he has since opted to concentrate on his business.
"I am a man full of anger and bitterness but I realized this will not help my people. I had opted to concentrate on my business and watch things unfold from the fence but then my love for the people of Kiambu drove me back," he said.
“I am not just after money or imposing myself on the people. The people of Kiambu know what they want. Even if I am left in the ballot room alone, I will not add a single paper in my favor to impose myself on them”.he added.
The controversial governor revealed that more than 50,000 people asked him to contest as an independent candidate.
"My track record [says it all]. I did not want to involve myself in any corruption. That is why by 5pm I had called the media to concede defeat," he said.
Kabogo lost the Jubilee nomination for Kiambu governor to Kabete MP Ferdinand Waititu, whom he has accused of using false propaganda and malicious accusations to discredit him.
