Residents also termed Kabogo “flamboyant, arrogant, self-centered and incompetent”.He also allegedly insulted women.“I gave my vote to Waititu because Kabogo insulted us, telling us that he was giving us money to buy in-ner-wear. He also tells poor residents that when given rice, they view the person who has given them the rice as their ‘god’. This is arrogance and we are fed up,” Limuru resident Grace Wanji-ru said. Others interviewed by the Star said Kabogo told residents to “queue in two lines like the breasts of a dog”, when he was dishing out cash. This incensed residents.Residents also said the county em-ployees, especially the law enforcers, have been harassing and intimidating them. “We are harassed by the county government officials for being late to pay levies. We are treated like crim-inals,” Kiambu town resident David Njau said.Kabogo, who is said to have dished out money during his meet-the-peo-ple tours, had also been labelled “Hotel 300” for giving out Sh300 to people.“We patiently waited for the gover-nor in centres, where he would meet residents and dish out money. But we vowed we will take his money and vote for change,” another resident said.It is said Kabogo did not see his downfall coming, as he was confident he would win. “Even if he moves to another party, Kiambu residents will not vote him back,” resident Dennis Ngamau said.Kabete MP Ferdinand Waititu in Kiambu county yesterday /STANLEY NJENGATetu MP hopeful Peter Kamuthu casts his vote at Karunaini Primary School yesterday /WAMBUGU KANYI@stanflexSTANLEY NJENGAAll Kirinyaga MPs voted out in the Jubilee primariesVoters in Kirinyaga county voted out all the four sitting MPs seeking reelection on the Jubilee Party ticket on Monday.The results were announced yesterday morning.
