How KOT reacted to Kabogo’s comeback as independent candidate
Kenyans on Twitter have expressed mixed reactions to Kiambu governor William Kabogo’s announcement that he will defend his seat as an independent candidate.
Some said the governor stood a chance if he apologises to the electorate while others said the margin between him and Ferdinand Waititu during the primaries was too huge.
At a press conference in his home on Sunday, Kabogo said that he was a victim of propaganda and a flawed Jubilee nomination adding that he will defend his seat due to “public demand.”
Here are some of the reactions on Twitter:
If Kabogo humbles himself before the electorate and enchants the women..he will make it as an independent. pic.twitter.com/EoFFmzm0tl

#tujengekiambu am not an analyst but I think whoever advised kabogo to pursue Kiambu maybe did not get all facts

I knew Kabogo would be back. That acceptance of defeat was too good to be true!

People of Kiambu, Why did you vote for Waititu unanimously and yet go ahead to tell Kabogo to run as an independent candidate?

Kabogo will have to do much more than just accept public demand.

The new image of Hon. Kabogo should worry Baba Yao. He had never come out before so romantic with his wife. Quite a turn around
