The incumbent Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui has vowed to challenge Susan Kihika’s win in the Nakuru County gubernatorial contest.
The outgoing Nakuru Senator who vied on a United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party ticket was declared winner of the gubernatorial contest after garnering 440,707 votes against Kinyanjui’s 225,623.
Declaring her the winner, Nakuru county Returning Officer, stated that Kihika beat Kinyanjui in all the 11 constituencies of the expansive and vote-rich county.
However, Kinyanjui has said that they have noted inconsistencies in the manner in which Nakuru people voted.
Speaking to the press this evening, the incumbent Lee Kinyanjui who was defending his seat on a Jubilee ticket said that they have noted that most people had voted for presidential candidates more than they had voted for other positions such as Governors, MPs, Women Representatives and MCAs.
According to Lee Kinyanjui, there was a curious voting pattern in Nakuru that saw electorates vote for President or Women Rep and disappeared, never voted for MP or MCA.
He noted that the process was not fair and as a result of the noted malpractices, he will be moving to court to challenge Kihika’s win.
