After sensing defeat in the Upcoming August polls out of favour jubilee candidate David Nkedianye has resorted to a smear campaign against the Incumbent Joseph Ole Lenku.
Nkedianye has been spreading propaganda that Lenku will not be on the ballot and that the Azimio la Umoja-One Kenya coalition would front a Jubilee candidate
However, in a twist of events Jubilee leaders led by David Murathe and Peter Kenneth endorsed the incumbent Joseph Ole Lenku who is from the ODM Party.
“You all know very well that I’m the ODM candidate for the governor seat. It does not matter whether other people are contesting, let us all meet at the ballot.” Lenku said
The county’s vote-rich basket in the north and Kitengela in the east gave all their votes to Lenku in 2017 and have vowed to do the same this year.
In 2017 after Lenku was announced the winner, Nkedianye did not challenge the result in court. Rather, he took a low profile until last year when he announced he would be running again.
Local political experts have said that the open endorsement of Lenku by Jubilee leaders and Raila Odinga spells doom to Nkedianye’s chances because the locals hold Raila’s stand in high regard.
