Kabete Member of Parliament Ferdinand Waititu has taken on Kiambu Governor William Kabogo saying that he is using forged education papers to smear his name.
MP Waititu has also brought up a report dubbedINTERNATIONAL DRUG TRAFFICKING RING ENJOYS IMPUNITY IN KENYA” which states “A number of suspects have been arrested for questioning about Abdillahi’s death. Among them: four brothers of (known thug and rich-far-beyond-visible-means) Juja MP William Kabogo, who is also owner of a port container transshipment company. (One of those brothers arrested had been arrested the day before Abdillahi was killed, having been charged with the theft of the 39 suspect containers.).”
Mr Waitiu says that to date this document has NOT been challenged by the Governor and remains accessible online and hence any person objectively reading the same arrives a conclusion that the Petitioner is alleged to be involved in drug trafficking.
Kabete MP also brought up the issue of the death of a University of Nairobi student, Mercy Keino which case is pending completion,
He said that Ms Keino died immediately upon leaving a party hosted by the said William Kabogo while he was the Member of Parliament for Juja Constituency in the now Kiambu County, on the night of June 17 2011.
Mr Waititu said he reviewed the available online reported testimony of Kabogo on the issue, and noted that whereas he alleged during his testimony that he merely “got her by the shoulders”, “shook her”, and “tapped her” allegedly because he wanted to know exactly how the deceased Mercy Keino had come to the party, the testimony of Scholastica Namwai Kamemba was to the effect that he assaulted the deceased.
“The linkage of the Petitioner to the said death (however remotely he has attempted to exonerate himself from it) remains an UNRESOLVED integrity issue on him. His leadership qualities are brought into sharp focus and question if as a leader he would attend parties where University students end up losing their lives,” Waititu holds.
The MP also says that Kabogo has relied on a fraudulent, forged document, to wit the COPY of a purported Certificate of Primary Education “Certificate” in the name of one “CLIFFORD NDUN’GU WAITITU” which was forged to purport that MBAGATHI PRIMARY SCHOOL was bearing the examination code 52019 whereas in truth the said Code 52019 belonged to CHEMASANGI PRIMARY SCHOOL, which is located in Bomet County (Saosa Constituency).
He also said that the Auditor General has brought out massive unexplained financial haemorrhage at the Kiambu County under the watch of governor Kabogo where plots that were inherited from the defunct local authorities have since been grabbed and totally unaccounted for.
He said that to date, Kabogo has not cleared the matters with the Senate and he has never had a citizens forum for the Kiambu residents to explain the massive loss of funds as evidenced by the Auditor’s Report.
Waititu also contests that the baseless claim is founded on political malice and intended solely to eliminate the serious political competition he poses in the forthcoming 2017 Kiambu County gubernatorial election.
He says that he believes Mr Kabogo set up the case against him to gain political mileage.
“I therefore perceive that the Petitioner is scared stiff of facing off with me at the ballot box in the said forthcoming election, and that he is attempting to employ every conceivable device to ensure that I am locked out from offering Kiambu County constituents the leadership that they have been lacking since 2013 at the gubernatorial level,” he believes.
The MP also said that Kabogo has made personal allegations against him, including his marriage which he said are solely driven to give the allegations publicity and high profile using me as a platform.
He also wants the petition by Kabogo dismissed
