Nakuru Governor Hon Lee Kinyanjui, has been reported to be the Governor who has lost big politically after the political relationship break-up between President Uhuru Kenyatta and Deputy President Dr William Ruto.
According to the Standard Newspaper, Governor Kinyanjui was among the most popular governors in the country during his election into office in 2017, by winning in a huge margin between his closest competitor.
He managed to win in such a huge margin due to the good and close relationship between the President and his deputy by that time. Nakuru being a cosmopolitan County, Governor Lee managed to get a big support from both the Kikuyus and Kalenjins residing there.
But currently the Governor has lost big support after the break up between the President and his deputy ahead of 2022 general elections. Most residents in Nakuru are reportedly supporting the Deputy President Dr William Ruto for presidency, while the Governor is on record castigating the DP and his politics.
Due to that position, the governor is said to have lost his popularity in a great extent and he might therefore not be re-elected in upcoming 2022 general elections. He is likely going to lose to the candidate whom the Deputy President will support through high UDA party.
