Nakuru Governor goes missing as DP Ruto visits Nakuru

Questions are being raised about why the Nakuru County Governor Lee Kinyanjui missed several events in Nakuru graced by the Deputy President.

Governor Lee Kinyanjui not only missed the events but also did not send any representation.

Though there are claims that he had not been invited, his seat had been reserved for all the occasions but he decided to miss.

The first was in Gilgil Sub-county hosted by MP area MP Martha Wangari on Saturday.

At Gilgil, the Deputy President to work towards an improved drainage and road network; reliable water supply; equipped hospitals and increased electricity connections. These he said would revamp Gilgil town and turn it into a thriving economic hub.

The Deputy President later on Saturday visited Nakuru Town West sub-county where he attended two functions. While there he launched several projects, promised to improve the road network and supported Holy Cross Catholic Church in Shabaab ward.

On Sunday, the Deputy president was still in Nakuru where he worshipped at St. Simon and Jude Catholic in Nakuru Town East Constituency.

The DP promised that the old Nairobi road will be re-carpeted and electricity connection will be given a priority. He also supported the completion of the church’s new building.

Governor Lee Kinyanjui was conspicuously absent in all these development functions.

Some residents at St. Simon & Jude church were heard wondering why the governor had shown them the contempt card vowing to do the same when he went there to seek their votes.

Strange enough, it has emerged that the Governor was not in any other official engagement. The governor who has a penchant for sharing everything he does on his official Facebook page posted nothing the whole weekend to show he was engaged elsewhere. The only posting on Sunday was about the Kenya Highways Authority (KENHA) unclogging the drainage at Gatehouse roundabout.
