BREAKING: Why Nakuru’s Governor Mbugua has bowed out of the race



Nakuru Governor Kinuthia Mbugua has stepped down as an independent candidate and thrown his weight behind the Jubilee Party candidate Lee Kinyanjui.

Mbugua stepped down after meeting President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto at State House Nakuru on Saturday morning.

The governor was accompanied by other Jubilee leaders in the county.

Mbugua, the former AP Commandant was defeated by Kinyanjui in the Jubilee nomination polls.

Kinyanjui, former chairman of the National Transport and Safety Authority and a former MP for Nakuru Town garnered 216,385 votes while the incumbent got 150,137.

Former Nacada boss John Mututho was a distant third with 30,487.

Mbugua, one of the senior Jubilee politicians who lost in the party primaries had defected from the Jubilee party.

He said the party primaries were not transparent and were marred by many irregularities.

He was seeking for re-election as an independent candidate.

Mbugua had picked a flamboyant MP aspirant, who lost in the Jubilee nominations for Kuresoi South, Peter Rutto as his running mate.

Rutto is a former finance manager and an ally of Deputy President William Ruto and Energy CS Charles Keter.
