The lawyer had tweeted:
Since HE Uhuru will soon start life style audit for all those who work for the govt and has kicked off a serious corruption crackdown… it’s a political imperative that the ENTIRE cabinet must resign so that Uhuru can pick a new and clean government…

Kabogo has in the past challenged President Uhuru to appoint him as Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) boss if he wants to win the war against graft.
In a TV interview on May 23, the former governor said that he understood how corruption cartels operate adding that if appointment they would all varnish.
“Before the president fully delves in implementing his four priorities, he must finish corruption and I can offer an effective approach. Some of the leaders in the current regime are fully looters and I can deal with them in five days, they will run even before I begin my work,” said Kabogo.
