The two then got into a heated argument as their supporters cheered them on. Wamatangi accused Kabogo of threatening him, but he refused to be intimidated.
“I’m not going to buy fear from you anymore, Kabogo; you spoke here, and I didn’t interrupt you. Do not dare me to divert my attention away from Kiambu’s development. If you want to sell fear, look elsewhere. Who told you this county was yours? Stop talking and get out of here!” Wamatangi bemoaned.
“Talk about your problems or get out of here,” Kabogo retorted as he motioned his colleague to stop his vehicle.
