William Kabogo, a former governor of Kiambu County, has finally addressed claims that he joined Raila Odinga’s Azimio La Umoja Movement in place of Deputy President William Ruto’s Kenya Kwanza Alliance.
Speaking during the Kiambu County governor’s debate on Sunday night, Kabogo said he is going it alone and has no support from any potential presidential candidates.
The four candidates were questioned on whether their platforms aligned with those of their respective presidential candidates by Citizen TV presenter Waihiga Mwaura.
Even though the Office of the Registrar of Political Parties had earlier acknowledged that the Tujibebe Party was one of the 11 parties that made up the Kenya Kwanza Alliance, Kabogo responded by categorically stating that he was not associated with any presidential candidates.
“Believe me, I don’t have a presidential candidate’s manifesto. So I’ll be dealing with my manifesto, which is to simply make life in Kiambu better for the locals and easier to survive. This can only be accomplished without creating a bank. Ksh2.5 billion is needed as a fixed fund requirement in order to create a bank. These actions won’t be possible for the government to take. As we did, you can establish a corporation in a bank. Kabongo stated
When questioned about why he has occasionally been seen at Kenya Kwanza rallies, Kabogo responded that it happened in the past and he has since moved on to work independently.
“I’m sure you saw me earlier. Waihiga, things alter. I am currently living alone and I am doing great,” he claimed.
