Former Kiambu Governor William Kabogo has said he is in the race to succeed president Uhuru Kenyatta in 2022. Kabogo has insisted his time has come to ascend to power to represent the people of Mt Kenya properly.
The former Kiambu Governor's declaration will serve Deputy president William Ruto a big blow in his quest to get support from Mt Kenya people.
Ruto has been making numerous inroads into the region seeking their votes as he seeks to succeed retiring president Uhuru Kenyatta in 2022.
Kabogo has complained as to how mt Kenya has been marginalised in revenue sharing despite having one of the largest population that pumps revenue to the government of Kenya.
He is the latest entrant into the presidential race that is now becoming crowded with top politicians like Musalia Mudavadi, Kalonzo Musyoka, Alfred Mutua and Senator Gideon Moi all having expressed interest in succeeding Uhuru.
However, William Ruto and ODM chief Raila Odinga are considered front runners.
