Speaking during an interview on Kameme FM, Kabogo said it was still early to start politicking about the next general election, but promised to make his formal announcement at a later date.

"I might be on the ballot in 2022 but as I have repeatedly said it is early to start talking about an election which is four years away. We have just come out of another poll, now is time to work," he said on Monday.

Asked what were his chances of working with Deputy President William Ruto, Kabogo said he was ready to work with him but said it should not be conditional.

"If we agree on where we want to take this country we can work together but I should not be told I must be his deputy, he can as well be my running mate," he said.

On the ongoing debate that President Uhuru Kenyatta has neglected Mount Kenya region, the former county boss said although a lot needs to be done, people should appreciate the little which has been done and stop piling unnecessary pressure on the Head of State.

"In February 2015, during a meeting with the President at the Sagana State Lodge, I told him he should not shy away from initiating major projects for our people and I can say he has tried. The MPs making noise now are the biggest failures since they decided their work is all about 2022 election and not the electorate," added Kabogo.
