One of the persons who were being seen as one of the most likely 2022 presidential running mates has technically removed himself from the category, saying that rather, he will be going for the top seat.
Already, the race is heating up, with some leaders from Mt Kenya, the biggest vote basket, saying that one of their sons and daughters must be picked as the running mate if they are to vote for the person.
But the ex-county boss, who has formed his own party, the Tujibebe Wakenya Party, now says that he is not interested in the DP post. He told The Star that he will be going for the seat himself.
His party Secretary General Irungu Gathii said that their new party should not be looked down on, stating that plans are in place to ensure that it forms the next government under Kabogo.
“We are ready for the 2022 General Election and we are sure that our party will form the next government," said Gathii, a former Speaker of the Kiambu County Assembly.
Kabogo urged party leaders to ensure that their outfits reflect the national outlook of the country by including all tribes in the governing bodies.
This has been the case lately, with Kirinyaga governor Anne Waiguru, who also seen as Raila's possible running mate announcing that she might soon join his leading opponent, Deputy President William Ruto.
