Nakuru Governor, Lee Kinyanjui.
Political temperatures continue to rise as the country nears the 2022 general elections. The presidential race is shaping up to be a two horse race between William Ruto and Raila Odinga. Both of them have developed different political strategies to help the win the votes from Kenyans. Raila is driving the BBI agenda while Ruto has come up with the hustlers narrative.
Ugly scenes have begun to unfold as allies of these two leaders confront each other publicly. A fight broke out in Kisii between Simba Arati and Osoro during the burial ceremony of Kisii deputy governor, Joash Maangi.
Even before the dust settles, political temperatures were again on the rise during the burial ceremony of Mighty Salim in Nakuru county. It started when Moses Kuria took to the stage and criticized the Jubilee government for failing Musicians. Kuria said that it was a shame for the government to fail in providing NHIF covers to artists. He went ahead and said that there was no hope from the government in the remaining 18 months to solve issues surrounding this industry.
On the BBI, Moses Kuria asked the mourners to reject it. He said that the report aims at burdening the common citizens by creating more posts for politicians.
Then Nakuru governor, Lee Kinyanjui, took to the stage and he didn't hesitate to answer Kuria. Kinyanjui criticized the vocal MP for telling artists that there is no hope from the government. He claimed that this was hypocritical because Kuria is part of the government and if he has no hope he should resign.
This recharged the crowd where some started to cheer in celebration of the governor's response. Lee also said that there is no place in the BBI that mentions Raila's name asking the residents to separate the two. He also asked the mourners to support the BBI report because it has the solution to some of the problems they have been facing.

The BBI conversation has continued to dominate the current political atmosphere. Some leaders from the Mt Kenya region have pledged to reject this report despite the President's intervention.
