He said if he elected, his top priority will be to ensure the county sets up a university to cater for children from poor families study free of change.

Kabogo accused at Foreign Affairs Minister Moses Wetangula of vendetta for his recent attack on TNA Presidential candidate Uhuru Kenyatta over parcels of land owned by the family of the founding president.
