The battle to the Kiambu gubernatorial seat is becoming stiffer and stiffer everyday.
Kabete MP, Ferdinand Waititu is linking Governor William Kabogo to drug dealing and behind the death of Mercy Keino who was a student at UoN.
The MP says he will file a closed petition for Kabogo to publicly explain his and his brothers’ involvement in the 2006 killing of Kenya Ports Authority DCIO Hassan Abdullahi in Mombasa.
Kabogo’s brothers – James Ng’ang’a, Evans Kamau and Paul Mburu had been arrested over the murder and the theft of 39 containers suspected to have contained drugs.
“What is a man of integrity doing getting involved in such matters,” he asks rhetorically in the video clip.
Waititu also announced that the Governor was named, by the then Internal security minister George Saitoti, as one of Kenya’s drug kingpins.
Kabogo was named alongside the then Kisauni MP Hassan Joho, who is Mombasa Governor, Harun Mwau, current Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko and Mombasa tycoon Ali Punjani. They were later cleared.
Waititu further questioned Kabogo’s involvement in the mysterious death of Keino, who was a student at the University of Nairobi.
Though crucial evidence was tempered with, DPP Keriako Tobiko recommended the reopening of the murder inquest in 2015.
Waititu also accused Kabogo of financing the burning of Thika’s Makongeni market, claiming his government bought the petrol gangs used in the arson.
He further claimed those who burned the market were paid at Thika stadium and he was the main financier.
This has come after Kabogo went to court accusing Waititu to be holding a fake academic degree qualifications thus he’s not eligible to vie for the gubernatorial position.
