With only 41 days to the August general elections, politicians have been intensifying their campaigns in different regions.
Since the governor Lee Kinyanjui of the Jubilee party and his competitor Senator Susan Kihika of the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) chose their deputies from the second-largest ethnic minority, the Kalenjin, political tensions in Nakuru have risen.
The governor of Nakuru, Lee Kinyanjui, who backs Raila Odinga for Azimio, has today asked William Ruto not to mention his name on social media platforms since he is not part of the Kenya Kwanza manifesto.
Today, the outspoken governor took to his social media to state that Deputy President Wiliam Ruto should focus on his campaigns. He has further claimed the Deputy president has mentioned his name more often compared to his opponent Raila Odinga.
The governor of Nakuru, Lee Kinyanjui, has also retaliated against UDA party officials for what he called "making him the centerpiece for their campaigns."
