Former Kiambu governor William Kabogo has broke his silence moment after Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) chairman Wafula Chebukati declared deputy President William Ruto as the president elect of the Republic of Kenya.
Kabogo who withdrew from Kenya Kwanza alliance days to elections citing lack of transparency in the coalition, claiming that United Democratic Alliance (UDA) candidates were being favoured has congratulated the second in command upon his crowning as the fifth president of the republic of Kenya.
"The minute the 5th was announced simultaneously I got a good catch. Hongera Rais William Ruto," Kabogo has penned.
DP Ruto has been announced as a winner after garnering 7,176,141 votes which represents 50.49 percent of the total votes casted, with former prime minister Raila Odinga trailing him at 6,942,930 which translates to 48.5 of the total votes casted.
Upon his win, the president elect has promised to work with everyone, Including those who did not vote for him as he bid take Kenya forward.
