Speaking exclusively to NTV's Olive Burrows on Thursday, Kabogo said the things he had warned Kiambu residents about, had come to pass with the passage of time.

He went on to accuse the embattled Waititu of the same propaganda, he had accused others of propagating against him.

"I am vindicated. What was interesting was to hear Waititu talk about propaganda, that Kiambu is full of propaganda. What he forgot is that he used the same propaganda," Kabogo said.

Waititu was impeached on Wednesday after waging a spirited battle to clear his name.

His deputy James Nyoro will now take the reins of power and is waiting to be sworn in as required by law.

Waititu's political life now hangs on a thin thread, his fate lies with the courts where he faces a litany of corruption related charges, that he has strongly rubbished.

His fall from grace somewhat marks the end to the drama that he was locked in with his deputy, that saw the two leaders exchange strong words publicly.

Members of the Kiambu County Assembly aligned between the two leaders, with the majority siding with Nyoro on the impeachment question.
