Nakuru: "Lee Onyango Or Ochieng?" Kenyans React After Governor Kinyanjui Was Installed As Luo Elder

Nakuru governor Lee Kinyanjui has elicited mixed reactions from the public after he was installed as a Luo elder by Nyanza locals who live in the county.

This follows after Kinyanjui was crowned with the honorary title for hinting that he would endorse former prime minister Raila Odinga's 2022 presidential ambitions.

The locals who lived in Nakuru bestowed him with the title and claimed he deserved the same for supporting the former prime minister.

However, the event caused numerous reactions from Members of the public who expressed diverse opinions over the same. Majority asked critical and also, less serious questions on how and why the same took place.

While responding to a Facebook post by K24 TV Live on the story, netizens poured scorn on what was done to the governor. They wondered why the community had to do so to an outsider who does not know their culture. They thrashed the process and claimed it was consequential to the county boss' leadership.

In their mockery, some pabtized Kinyanjui with Luo male names such as Onyango, Ochieng, Omolo and Otieno to show that he was now part of the Nyanzan community. Here are the screenshots of the reactions from the residents:

TThis comes days after Raila indicated that he would support the former prime minister's 2022 presidential bid. He is among Mt Kenya and Rift Valley governors who have resolved to back Raila for the top seat courtesy of 2018 handshake. Besides Kinyanjui, other governors who have endorsed ODM leader include Nderitu Muriithi (Laikipia), Francis Kimemia (Nyandarua) and Dr James Nyoro (Kiambu)
