Ferdinand Waititu will be making a political comeback next year by going for the Kabete MP seat.

The former Kiambu county boss first made his intentions clear to close allies and friends last month, when he visited the DP in Karen, where it was agreed the former governor is among identified leaders across Mt Kenya assured of the UDA ticket by DP Ruto.

In January last year, Senators allied to the deputy president lost in the House after their counterparts backing President Uhuru and Raila Odinga confirmed Waititu’s impeachment and upheld the guilty verdict by Kiambu county assembly.
