Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri is an isolated man, following his move to vote for the BBI in the National Assembly, despite months of opposing the document.
Even though there has been a tussle of leadership, between Senator Susan Kihika and the Bahati MP, it is believed last week’s vote has amplified the differences, with Kihika winning over a majority of UDA supporters on her side.
According to multiple sources from Ruto’s camp, the Nakuru Senator has won the trust of DP Ruto and is expected to be the party’s leading light in Nakuru county.
Ms. Kihika has set up a UDA Nakuru County coordination team comprising her supporters, former MCAs, and influential businessmen who bankrolled Jubilee in the last two elections in the region.
Interestingly, Kimani Ngunjiri and his allies have been sidelined in the new team, something which has made the Bahati legislator withdraw his support for the senator’s gubernatorial bid in 2022.
”I saw the direction she is taking and I thought it would be messy if she is elected as the governor of Nakuru. I don’t want to be associated with her. Count me out of her support team,” Mr. Ngunjiri said.
