Mbugua has now said he has stepped down as an independent candidate and thrown his weight behind the Jubilee Party candidate Kinyanjui.

Governor Mbugua said he was not satisfied with the way his appeal was dealt with by the Jubilee tribunal prompting him to go independent.

Mbugua stepped down after meeting President Uhuru Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto at State House Nakuru on Saturday morning.

The governor was accompanied by other Jubilee leaders in the county.

Mbugua is a former Administration Police Commandant .
