Nakuru - National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) Chairman Lee Kinyanjui has announced that he will resign from his position in September in bid to vie for Nakuru Gubernatorial seat in 2017.
His announcement comes as the County prepared for a heated race in 2017 as several candidates declaring their interests.
Others who have declared their gubernatorial interest include NACADA Chairman John Mututho and Senator James Mungai.
Kinyanjui made the bold step after months of speculations that he will try his luck for a second time to vie for the seat which he lost to incumbent Kinuthia Mbugua in 2013.

He made his announcement on Wednesday during the celebration for 27 years of success for St Francis Secondary school in Lare Njoro where he was the chief guest.
“In 2013, I was in the ballot and did not succeed but I joined hands with President Uhuru Kenyatta as chairman of NTSA. I will quit in September and urge you to support me,” he appealed.
Kinyanjui said that if elected, he will involve local leaders and the community in decision making in order to know which projects to give prominence to.
