Kiambu Governor William Kabogo has been accused of working secretly with former Prime Minister Raila Odinga to divide Kikuyus and Kalenjins.
On wensday, Kabogo told Deputy President William Ruto frankly that Mt. Kenya will not support him for President in 2022 after Uhuru.
“Ruto and I are friends and as such I am entitled to tell him the truth. The conversation for 2022 presidential elections should begin now,” Kabogo said as quoted by Citizen TV.
Speaking in Juja, Kabogo warned Ruto that his support in Central Kenya was not guaranteed and that they have enough votes to support one of their own.
He added that despite an agreement between Ruto and Uhuru, leaders from the region will sit, negotiate and decide who to support in 2022.
“Even if we promised someone a seat, we will have to sit down and talk. We will not just give away the seat like that. If you think because we agreed it will go like that, we have the votes and therefore have to be respected,” Kabogo said.
However, a section of leaders from the region have dismissed Kabogo’s assertions as baseless
