Nakuru - Nakuru Governor, Kinuthia Mbugua has accused two Nakuru MPs of hatching a plot to lock him out of the newly formed Jubilee Alliance Party (JAP) ahead of the 2017 elections.
Mbugua claimed that Bahati MP, Kimani Ngunjiri and his Nakuru East counterpart, David Gikaria are working closely with his opponents and JAP’s interim officials to frustrate him during the party nominations in 2017.
Speaking at Kuresoi town Monday, Mbugua said that the two legislators who have been opposing his leadership are doing everything possible to have him locked out of JAP’s nominations in 2017.

“There are some people who were elected as members of parliament but instead of doing the work they were elected to do, they are busy wasting time trying to fight Mbugua who is doing his work. Gikaria and Ngunjiri should focus on doing their work and if they are interested in the Governor’s seat, then they can wait for 2017 and the people will decide," said Mbugua.
He added, “Let them not think that the plan they have to lock me out of JAP will work because JAP does not belong to an individual and they have no powers to lock anyone out of the party. I will be in JAP when time comes and let’s meet at the nominations.”
Ngunjiri and Gikaria are some of the fierce critics of Governor Mbugua and they have often found themselves on opposing ends in terms of county politics.
