“There were people who wanted to stop our campaign because of our transformation of our county by spreading false propaganda.”
William Kabogo added that his team has evidence that the nominations were flawed and characterized by “obvious” irregularities”.
The governor thanked his supporters for trusting him to bring change in Kiambu county.
“Thank you for trusting me to govern you for the last four years because the transformation we have done in this great county I couldn’t have done it without your support,” he said.
He alleged that he had submitted a memorandum to the Jubilee Party listing irregularities observed during the nominations, but which was never acted on.
William Kabogo – Done My Best
“It has been a long journey in Jubilee and I have done my best. But since it seems like there are huge powers that need to keep me away, I am saying that for now, I am doing what it is that that memorandum said: I don’t agree with these nominations,” he told journalists.
