William Kabogo:"Come Clean On The Available Government Seats For Mt Kenya" He Challenged Ruto

Former Kiambu governor William Kabogo has challenged deputy president William Ruto to state publicly what benefits the people of Mt Kenya will receive if he is elected on August 9.

On Thursday, Kabogo spoke in Thika as part of a campaign tour to promote his Tujibebe Wakenya governorship bid.

He was responding to claims that the Western region, represented by Musalia Mudavadi and Moses Wetang'ula, had been guaranteed 30% of government seats if Kenya Kwanza formed the next administration.

Kabogo remarked that he is advocating for the interests of the people of Mt Kenya but not that of his party.

“My party doesn’t need a share from your administration but that interest of people from Mt Kenya region must be recognized. You can film this footage and share it with him (Ruto),” Kabogo remarked.

Kabogo said the three remaining months until the August polls are time for a radical adjustment if the deputy president fails to respect his pledges.

“And if we leave the coalition even with ten people, Ruto’s goal can be shuttered and made unrealistic,” Kabogo noted.

He further added that DP Ruto had pledged to produce an economic strategy detailing out how the Mt Kenya region would benefit from his government if he is elected president.

Kabogo claimed that when he met Kenya Kwanza, they agreed that any additional money for devolution should be split proportionally to the population of the counties.

He added urged area senator Kimani Wamatangi, who is pursuing the governor position on UDA, to rethink his quest.
