In a Thursday's Facebook post, Kinyanjui expressed disaffection with the way United Democratic Alliance (UDA) politicians were infringing on Democratic choices made by the residents ahead of the polls.
According to the first time governor, UDA politicians allowed Kenyans from other counties to make choices of leaders who are supposed to lead them in August this year, without directing them on specific one.
However, he said that when the politicians, led by deputy president Dr William Ruto come to Nakuru, they dictate on their most preferred candidates for various seats, including and moreso gubernatorial.
Further, in a thinly-veilled jibe at his colleague, Kinyanjui quipped that the UDA fraternity want residents to elect grassroot leaders who would dance to their tunes, even they have no tangible agenda.
"However, in Nakuru, the governor and senator candidates have already been endorsed. The will of the members will count for nothing in the nominations," read part of Kinyanjui's post.
Nevertheless, the county boss, who has left Jubilee for a newly-formed Ubuntu People's Forum (UPF) party averred that the residents of Nakuru would decide for themselves their preferred leaders.
This follows after Mandago urged locals to elect Kihika as their third governor in August elections. He was speaking at a rally in Afraha stadium on Wednesday, which was also attended by DP Ruto, Amani National Congress (ANC) leader Musalia Mudavadi and Bungoma senator Moses Wetangula.
The Uasin Gishu governor had furthermore, took a swipe at Kinyanjui for associating with former prime minister Raila Odinga. He scoffed at him, arguing that he had lost his political network.
