Kirinyaga Governor Anne Waiguru has responded to Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui following his remarks that presidential aspirants are investing too much in the Mount Kenya region and might end up regretting it.

Governor Lee through a post on social media had cautioned the hopefuls from investing too much into the region adding that they would end up regretting it.

For instance, the Nakuru County boss hinted that the region will only vote depending on real issues that are affecting the people and no harambees nor sideshows would make them sway their votes.

According to Lee, among the top issues the people from the mountain will consider is the fight against corruption.

“All we ask is caution while pursuing this bloc. Do not invest too much because you are likely to regret it. From the last five elections since the introduction of multiparty, the region has voted with its head, not heart,” Kinyanjui wrote on Facebook.

In a rejoinder, Waiguru says she agrees with part of the sentiments made by Governor Lee while drumming support for Deputy President William Ruto.

“While I agree that Mt Kenya wants a leader who will represent their interests- it’s definitely not in the traditional sense… This time, they will vote with both their heads and hearts; A message they understand and a messenger they feel!” Waiguru wrote.
