In a Facebook post on Wednesday after the Senate voted to impeach Waititu, Kabogo appeared to hail the move, saying the people of Kiambu would now be able to get services.

"The people of Kiambu should start getting services now. Choices have consequences," the former county boss wrote.

Waititu's impeachment seemed like a validation of Kabogo's warning to the people of Kiambu, that they had elected somebody who could not be entrusted with public funds.

Kabogo was defeated by Waititu in the 2017 gubernatorial elections, in what political observers described as an upset.

The Senate's decision to uphold the impeachment of the embattled governor marked a dramatic fall from grace for Waititu.

He accused his political adversaries of pushing for him to be charged for corruption.

His impeachment at the Senate was based on 3 counts with 27 senators voting for Waititu's impeachment in the first count and 28 voting for impeachment in the second and third counts.

Waititu is still facing charges in the courts over corruption, and was ordered not to step in his office for the duration of his case.
