Lee Kinyanjui accepts defeat

21 January 2013, 11:13Steve Wambugu

The outgoing Nakuru Mp Lee Kinyanjui who was trounced by Kinuthia Mbugua for the Gubernatorial seat in Nakuru County has said that he will support all candidates who emerged winners in the just concluded TNA nomination.

In a press statement which was circulated to media houses on Sunday morning, Lee thanked the thousands of people who voted for him during the TNA primaries saying they stayed strong and remained patient despite the delays which were experienced on the first day.

However, the Road Assistant Minister said that the just concluded Nominations in Nakuru County were marred by irregularities which he said affected the outcome of the results.

He noted that issues of thuggery and underhanded rigging took place in various polling stations.

At the same time, Lee pledged to continue supporting TNA in spite of his defeat by the former AP commandant Kinuthia Mbugua.

Kinuthia Mbugua won the nominations for Gubernatorial seat for Nakuru County with a total votes of 143 487 against Lee Kinyanjui who only managed to pick 53 137 votes.
