The bars and hotel operators in Ruiru and Githurai accused Kabogo and the county Government of charging them license fees for the same business twice.

The traders want the court to quash the county's Alcoholic Drink and Control (Licensing) Act 2014, which saw them charged the supposed unfair fee.

The businessmen opposed the regulation which is expected to come into force as from April 30 at Milimani law courts.

This comes as a blow to Kabogo, who was thrashed by Kabete MP Ferdinand Waititu in the Jubilee primaries.

The Governor told journalists that he would now focus on other things after conceding defeat to his rival, Waititu.

“It has been a long journey in Jubilee and I have done my best. But since it seems like there are huge powers that need to keep me away, I am saying that for now, I am doing what it is that that memorandum said: I don’t agree with these nominations.

“Rumours are that I am a threat to someone. I don’t know whether that is true but as fate will have it, you bite it one step at a time. So I want to say I don’t agree with this nominations. The petition is with the party, the party can do whatever it is that they deem fit to do,” Kabogo said.
