Former Kiambu County governor William Kabogo has come out fighting in full disclosure mode, and has even brought along screenshots for good measure, to share with Kenyans what Trade Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria told him after he offered his regards upon the loss of his sister. This was after a section of Kenyans criticised Kabogo for not having stood with the former Gatundu South member of parliament in his moment of loss.
Kabogo, in a brief and seemingly emotional tweet, told off all those who were ignorantly attacking him, revealing that not only had he condoled with the CS, but the CS had even thanked him for his kind words.
He then went ahead to share a screenshot of his message to Kuria and Kuria’s response.
Just this last week, President William Ruto led Kenyans in mourning Trade Cabinet Secretary Moses Kuria’s sister.
In a tweet, the Head of State prayed for strength to the family as they handle the loss of their loved one.
Not much is known about the deceased, namely Nyokabi, including the circumstances that led to her demise.
Kuria is a popular yet polarising politician who was instrumental in campaigning for President Ruto in the run-up to the August 2022 polls, and who, while enjoys wide support in some parts of the country, is loathed in others.
He failed in his bid to become Kiambu governor after he was beaten by eventual winner Kimani Wamatangi who ran on a United Democratic Alliance party ticket. Despite this, he was rewarded with a Cabinet post.
He is also known to issue several controversial political statements including recently when he suggested that Kenyans are more likely to die for living in their country.
He made the statement in a bid to justify the need for Kenyans to cultivate and consume GMO products, including food.
“By just being in this country, you are a candidate for death. And because there are so many things competing to kill you, there is nothing wrong with adding GMOs to that list,” he is reported to have said.
