Kiambu Governor William Kabogo claims that he is a victim of propaganda that was painted on him by his rivals to make the impression that he was arrogant and disrespectful to women.
In an exclusive interview with Capital FM News, the governor said that he lost the nomination battle because Jubilee held shambolic party primaries, adding that he has since put that to his past.
“I am a victim of shambolic primaries, a victim of propaganda and a victim of people who only think about their stomachs and where they will be and not the people. But I will be a Governor in September,” he asserted.
Kabogo revealed that all was well in Kiambu for the last four years, until the last two days to the nominations when the propaganda went viral. He added then the media fanned went ahead to spread the propaganda leading to his defeat.
“The most unfortunate thing is a person of integrity using propaganda to get you, a servant, out of the office so that they can come and do other things because they cannot lead. They don’t have that capacity,” the Governor stated.
Kabogo, who lost to Kabete MP Ferdinand Waititu, further said that his development record in Kiambu is undisputable, adding that his competitors have no agenda for the county.
“They don’t talk about programs, they never talk about projects…and that is all they can talk about. Their slogan is don’t pay (county fees), how do they expect the county to grow?” he asked.
“The County has currently disbursed Sh300 million to such groups…about 3,700 individuals and groups have benefited from the fund,” he said.
