Outgoing Kiambu governor William Kabogo on Saturday shocked many when he attended the swearing in of Ferdinand Waititu as the new Kiambu County boss.
The immediate former Kabete MP was sworn by Lady Justice Stella Mutuku at Ndumberi Stadium.
Kabogo, who had already congratulated Waititu made a shocking appearance at the stadium together his deputy Gerald Githinji, to hand over power to Waititu. Many governors who lost their seats have been skipping the swearing-in ceremonies of their rivals.
Cabinet Secretaries Joe Mucheru (ICT) and Sicily Kariuki (Gender and Youth Affairs), Senator Kimani Wamatangi and all MPs recently elected in the county were present.
Speaking during the handing over, Kabogo congratulated Waititu and asked him to continue with the work he started.
"Your excellence Governor Waititu, your excellence the First Lady Ms Waititu", It is my duty to be here this afternoon.
"Four years ago, the people of Kiambu gave me and my deputy power to run the county affairs, and here today they give it you," he said
"We must work together or we will perish together as fools," he said.
