Kiambu County governor William Kabogo has sensationally told Mombasa governor Hassan Joho to “keep off President Uhuru Kenyatta.”
Speaking at a rally in Gatundu Stadium on Tuesday, March 14, where he had gone to thank residents for turning out to register as voters ahead of August 8 poll, Mr Kabogo demanded that Joho must respect the president.
He noted that opposition governors had formed a habit of disrespecting the Presidency.
“I want to send a message to these two people. Number one is (Mombasa) Governor, Ali Hassan Joho. Leave President Uhuru Kenyatta alone! I know where you live. And I am sending this stern message to you, Joho, leave his Excellency the President alone. Leave Uhuru Kenyatta alone. Respect the President,” said Mr Kabogo.
Kabogo also fired shots at Turkana Govenor Josephat Nanok, who recently had a public spat with Uhuru Kenyatta.
“My warning message goes to the other man (Mr Nanok). I do not know even how he looks like. He looks like… [expletive]. You remember the other day he said his Excellency is called Muthamaki? Satan should be defeated. Satan should be defeated,” said Kabogo.
He added that Uhuru is a King who was anointed by God.
“This is our country and nobody can take it from us. He (Uhuru) is our king and he was anointed by God. You (Gatundu residents), what do you think about that matter? Lift your hands up to show whether you accept him (Uhuru) as your king,” said Kabogo.
