Senator James Mungai still in Gubernatorial race

Nakuru Senator James Mungai has affirmed that he is still in the race for the Nakuru gubernatorial seat in the 2017 elections.
Mr Mungai was speaking in response to a story that appeared in one of the daily newspaper on Monday that pointed out that he will be defending his senatorial seat on a Jubilee ticket.
Mr Mungai accused his political detractors of spreading lies that he has quit the race in order to mislead his followers.
“Let my supporters know that I am still in the race and those saying I changed my political ambitions for the governor’s seat in 2017 are experiencing political fever and the rumours are baseless,” said Mungai.
The Senator added that his rivals have panicked after getting hint on how well he is prepared and have now started resorting to propaganda tactics to hoodwink his supporters.
The reports have caused a heated debate among supporters of the politician who are now demanding that he clears the air.
The seat has attracted several hopefuls that include the incumbent Governor Kinuthia Mbugua, Former NTSA Chairman Lee Kinyanjui, Former Nacada Boss John Mututho, Rev Lawrence Bomet and Steve Kabita, a former member of National Cohesion and Integration Commission.
