Samburu incumbent governor Moses Lenolkulal has shocked UDA supporters in the county for his current political move.

Lenolkulal had agreed to drop his bid to support UDA senatorial candidate Hon Steve Lelegwe, who is the incumbent senator while Lenolkulal is finishing his second term in office.EACC wants Governor Lenolkulal's bid to access his bank accounts dismissed

He had also agreed to support UDA gubernatorial candidate Jonathan Lati Leleiit a position in DP Ruto's national presidential campaigns.

However, on the presidential candidates, Lenolkulal has not shifted his allegiance but he is still drumming up support for deputy president William Ruto.

According to reports by Nation, supremacy battle in the county has resulted in the incumbent governor supporting Azimio candidats, Dr Richard Lesiyampe and Henry Lengolos who are seeking the guberanatorial and senatorial seats in that order.

''Are you ready for the August 9th general election? Then vote in Dr Lesiyampe and Henry Lengolos as you next governor and senator. At the top, vote DP Ruto as your president,'' Lenolkulal urged voters while campaigning in Samburu East.
