(KDRTV) – Pictures of President Uhuru Kenyatta at the home of former Kiambu Governor William Kabogo have raised speculation on what the two could be planning.
The President made the visit on Sunday afternoon. It is not clear if this was work-related or just a courtesy call.

Kabogo, who controversially lost his seat to Ferdinand Waititu in 2017, has recently been very vocal in his support for the BBI report.

The former Governor fell out with the Jubilee government after he was beaten in the 2017 nominations. He accused the state of engineering the outcome of the Jubilee Primaries in Kiambu. He defended his seat as an independent candidate but still lost. At the time, he was even rumored to be supporting ODM leader Raila Odinga for the Presidency.

In January last year, Uhuru engineered the removal of Waititu as Kiambu Governor over a litany of issues bordering on incompetence and corruption.
Kabogo is expected to challenge the county leadership in next year’s polls. With Waititu out of the way, he will not have any meaningful opposition. His odds of winning the coveted seat will massively increase if he is endorsed by the President.
