VIDEO: Kabogo says he is a good man, warns his opponents
A Kenyan Governor has dismissed claims that he is running a dirty campaign to reclaim his seat and is wondering why some people only accuse him of selling illicit drugs when elections are around the corner.
Kiambu Supremo, William Kabogo has also denied unleashing terror goons on his opponents to intimidate them.
At a public rally in Thika, Kabogo said the fact that five people “have ganged up to fight me is prove enough that I am the man.” He named aspirant Ferdinard Waititu and Rev David Ngari as some of the people behind the push to oust him.
“Lakini nitawapeleka kama baiskeli ya wizi,” said the governor.
And speaking in an interview with The Standard newspaper, Kabogo said his opponents are trying very hard to portray him as a thug and a gangster.
“I am not a gangster. My opponents are keen on portraying me as a leader of a gang and a thug. The claims they have always made have never been substantiated anywhere… On the contrary, I am a very successful businessman, who has thrived through hard work. Now I am a successful Governor, but of course there are those who are keen on pulling me down by portraying me as abrasive and thriving on violence,” he said.
Besides Kabete MP Ferdinand Waititu who is his main rivals, others who have been giving Kabogo spleepless nights are Dr James Nyoro, John Mugwe and Rev David Kariuki (Gakuyo). The three have thrownn their weight behind Waititu after withdrawing their candidature. Kabogo and Waititu will battle it out for the Jubilee ticket during the nominations slated for April 21st.
