Nakuru - Days after the much hyped tour of Nakuru by President Uhuru Kenyatta, a section of MPs from the County have been put on notice for allegedly snubbing the tour.
Nakuru Senator James Mungai, MPs Moses Cheboi, Zakayo Cheruiyot, Raymond Moi and Nderitu Mathenge did not shown up during the two-day tour by the President.
Nakuru parliamentary group chair, Kimani Ngunjiri on Sunday asked the leaders to explain why they snubbed the head of state's tour despite being invited.

Ngunjiri said that the members' absence was a clear sign of undermining and disrespecting the President.
"We invited all elected leaders to the President's tour but to our surprise, four MPs and the Senator neither showed up and they nor sent apologies," said Ngunjiri.
"We want them to tell the people of Nakuru why they decided to disrespect the President or else we shall ask the people to punish them at the ballot," he said.
President Kenyatta and his deputy William Ruto were in Nakuru on Wednesday and Thursday last week where they launched various development projects.
