Nakuru county governor Lee Kinyanjui has urged presidential hopefuls not to invest too much and be cautious of Mt Kenya as they might regret.
In a lengthy Facebook post the county boss stated that Mount Kenya will vote basing on their interests.
“The recent upsurge in political activities witnessed in the Mt. Kenya region is baffling. Indeed, you would be forgiven for thinking other parts of the country will not be voting in the coming elections. All we ask is caution while pursuing this block. Do not invest too much because you are likely to regret.” He posted.
“From the last five elections since multiparty, the region has voted with its head not heart. Interests and only interests will reign supreme.”He continued.
In what seemed like an attack to the deputy president William Ruto’s stand against BBI which denied the Mount Kenya people their right of one man one shilling one vote and when they sought equality of the vote, as well as if one supported their kin while in office.
“Did you support them when they wanted one man one shilling one vote? Did you support them when they sought equality of the vote? Did you support their kin while in office? What is your stand on free enterprise and fight against corruption? The candidate that affirms the above takes the prize.” Kinyanjui wrote.
“These are the real issues that will define choices. Not the number of harambees, roadside shows or token to individuals. History has a strange way of repeating itself.”
Last week Kinyanjui with other Mt. Kenya governors are seeking to form a political outfit that they will use for reelection in 2022.
