Former Mukurweini Member of Parliament Kabando wa Kabando has sensationally claimed Uhuru did not win the 2017 presidential election.
Speaking on Citizen TV, the vocal politician said he is among the few Jubilee politician who believes Uhuru did not win the election, suggesting there was an element of rigging.
“I think I am among the few who have said that Uhuru did not win in 2017,” said the former legislator.
Kabando, a former ardent supporter of the Jubilee party further dismissed claims that his alleged bitterness is fueled by President Uhuru Kenyatta’s failure to nominate him to the cabinet despite being a close ally.
The ex-Jubilee lawmaker who also said Uhuru was grooming Baringo Senator Gideon Moi to take over from him in 2022 further argued that William Ruto’s hustler narrative is resonating well with the common Kenyan.
“Today, you may not like William Ruto but his messaging is resonating on the ground,” he said.
The 2017 presidential election was historic after the Supreme Court overturned President Uhuru Kenyatta and William Ruto’s victory over claims of massive rigging.
Kabando Wa Kabado went on to assure his supporters that he will be on the ballot in the much-anticipated 2022 General Election to reclaim his seat.
Kabando is not the first politician to raise the impression that the Jubilee party stole the 2017 presidential votes.
