Mr Kabogo's career dreams came tumbling down in the last few days when a vibrant campaign machinery by Mr Waititu released a collection of his slurs against women (some unprintable) against which he defended himself but could not recover from.
In the rush to show action was being taken on the rancher's killing, Laikipia North MP Mathew Lempurkel was arrested and detained, but Nanyuki principal magistrate Waititu Gichimu later released him after the prosecution failed to give compelling reasons to continue detaining him in police custody.
"The official's hope is that if the project can rise to the top of Ukambani people's political agenda even for a few days, he would travel to the region himself and assure the people that all issues would be handled after the elections," said an MP who is familiar with the matter.
