Kiambu County Governor William Kabogo has disassociated himself from the Jubilee Party and its leaders. Kabogo, who lost to Kabete MP Ferdinand Waititu in the Jubilee party primary for Governor in April, claims he no longer has any relationship with President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President William Ruto.
Kabogo, the new chairman of Kenya Alliance of Independent Candidates, says he has chosen to direct his energy on defending his seat as an independent candidate.
“I’m done with Jubilee, I am an independent candidate, and I won’t associate myself with other people’s party. Yes, I was in Jubilee, but the shambolic party primaries made me leave,” said Kabogo.
“I have nothing to do with President Uhuru Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto,” he added.
The embattled governor blamed his rivals in the Kiambu Governor race, accusing them of spreading propaganda instead of selling the agenda they have for the Kiambu residents.
The governor called on Kiambu residents to turn out in large numbers and vote for him in the August 8 elections.
Kabogo will face Waititu again in the Kiambu race for governor in the August general elections.
