Former Kiambu governor William Kabogo is viewed as a wealthy man given his occasionally flashy lifestyle.
During an interview with K24 TV, that vexed questions regarding his source of wealth was going to pop up.
In the interview Kabogo rubbished claims that he had made his money from drug-trafficking.
He claimed that his cash was made in a clean way, cash he said he made during the 90s selling imported vehicles in Kenya.
“I made my money in the 1990s. I used to sell cars. My last shipment was over 100 cars from Japan. If you are making Sh100,000 on one car, how much is that!” the former county boss said.
William Kabogo proceeded to reveal that he used to supply products to the now collapsed Nakumatt Supermarket.
He additionally said that he owns buildings in Kiambu that generate good income for him.
“I used to supply Nakumatt with goods but I was not a shareholder. It is good for people to think I am fabulously wealthy. If you go to Kiambu, people look at a building and say this one is Kabogo’s,” he noted.
