There was an ugly clash between Kiambu Senator Kimani Wamatangi and former Kiambu Governor William Kabogo on Wednesday, June 15 during a rally organised by Rigathi Gachagua.
The aftermath of the dramatic confrontation saw a campaign vehicle affiliated with the former Kiambu Governor ram into that carrying Wamatangi.
A video seen by K24 showed witnesses claiming that Kabogo was in the vehicle that hit Wamatangi’s car – but we could not verify the claim.
Minutes earlier, the two candidates had a public showdown during Gachagua’s tour in Limuru.
In the exchange that nearly turned physical, Wamatangi, who shared the same vehicle with UDA Presidential running mate, accused Kabogo of threatening him insisting that he would not be intimidated.
Kabogo was seen throwing physical gestures at his Kenya Kwanza colleagues with their speeches overlapping as they each had a different microphone.
“I will no longer buy fear from you Kabogo, you spoke here and I did not interrupt you, my focus is on developing Kiambu and do not dare me. Look elsewhere if you want to sell fear – who told you this county belongs to you? Shut up and get out of here!” Wamatangi lamented.
“Talk about your issues or get out of here,” Kabogo retorted as he threw hand gestures at his colleague atop his vehicle.
This is, however, not the first time there has been fallout within the Kenya Kwanza Coalition. On Sunday, June 12, The Service Party (TSP) leader Mwangi Kiunjuri claimed that Deputy President William Ruto had withheld some crucial information regarding the contents of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) submitted by Kenya Kwanza to the Office of the Registrar of Political Parties (ORPP).
Kiunjuri argued that TSP was not aware of Mount Kenya’s stake in Ruto’s government despite signing a memorandum when joining the coalition.
In a separate instance, Mosop Member of Parliament Vincent Tuwei leaked the contact of the DP after a bitter fallout after accusing the party of rigging him out.
He further called the DP an oppressor after ignoring Ruto’s calls noting that ‘I will not bow down to pressure into stepping down for those who rigged me out.’
