This was one of the tightest races in the counties.

Speaking to the press on Wednesday afternoon Kabogo said that he respects the decision of the people of Kiambu.

"I concede. I have congratulated Waititu this afternoon; I thank people of Kiambu for opportunity to serve you in my first term," Mr Kabogo told journalists.

Mr Kabogo quit Jubilee Party expressing frustrations after the party primaries which he said were a sham. He claimed that the DP William Ruto was  behind his woes, prompting him to vie as an independent candidate in the hot Kiambu County race.
