KOT react to Wamatangi, Kabogo Kiambu tiff
Kenyans on Twitter (KOT) have shared varied reactions following the political stand-off pitting Kiambu gubernatorial candidates Kimani Wamatangi and William Kabogo.
The two politicians, who are affiliated with Deputy President William Ruto, exchanged not-so-rosy words during a rally in the county.
The discussion spilled over to Twitter, with Njeri Wavinya blaming Kabogo for interrupting Wamatangi’s speech.
Senator Wamatangi was silent when Kabogo was speaking but when it was Wamatangi's turn to speak Kabogo decides to interrupt his speech.Signs of a defeated man.

Conrad Kulo suggested, but without sharing evidence, that the exchange could politically benefit Ruto.
Dear Kikuyus this is all Ruto wanted. William Ruto worked so hard to have you people turn against one another. Trust me, he's loving it. He was Moi's stellar student. He's now watching from afar as Kabogo and Wamatangi publicly fight. Rigathi Gachagua looked on! pic.twitter.com/qOKlOZ2tfD

Another user suggested the exchange of words between the two politicians was a display of lack of leadership.
Wamatangi and Kabogo exchange their rivalry in public and to me this is a show of a worse kind of leadership.Let Kiambu decide but let it decide carefully.

Makau Muli suggested the confrontation could dent the DP’s political fortunes in Central Kenya.
To Kenya Kwanza courtesy of William Kabogo and Wamatangi, those ugly confrontation if not controlled can sink the boat. Thank me later.

Noordean Khagai says the verbal exchange showed how far politicians were willing to go to fight for their interests.
The ugly scenes from Kiambu between the 2 "box to box midfielders" (Kabogo & Wamatangi) should show you how far these politicians are willing to go as they fight for their stomachs. Time to ask yourselves whether these are the same people who will save you from your problems.
