Bahati MP Kimani Ngunjiri wants Nakuru county voters to elect Lee Kinyanjui back to office for a second term, saying the Jubilee Party governor had delivered in his first term and needed another five years to continue with the good work.
Speaking on Wednesday in Nakuru during the Madaraka Day celebrations, the Bahati MP, also a member of William Ruto’s United Democratic Alliance (UDA) asked politicians to stop imposing themselves on the people, and that the Kenyan voter knows who the right leaders are.
”Hakuna mtu anaye weza lazimishwa kupigia mtu mwingine kura. Nyinyi mnajua mnachagua kiti gani, na atakua mtu gani, na atakua kwa serikali…Jibu ni Lee na hata Bahati ni Kimani Ngunjiri,” the MP said amid cheers from the public.
The statement, backing Governor Lee Kinyanjui rubbed Senator Susan Kihika, the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) gubernatorial candidate the wrong way, prompting her to fire salvos at her UDA teammate.
”Ati Yule mjamaa wa Bahati Amesema nini Leo? Kama maneno iko hivo na mimi nasema watu wangu wa Bahati round hii tucheze kama sisi, kwani iko nini? Waende home na hiyo Jivu yake!” Senator Kihika wrote.
