Nakuru Members of County Assembly on Monday afternoon elected a new majority leader to replace Stanley Karanja who resigned earlier in the day citing health issues and pressure from some quarters.

Karanja will be replaced by Elementaita Ward Representative Moses Ndung’u Kamau who was elected unopposed.

The Nakuru County Assembly has in the past few months been embroiled in a row that saw Karanja at one time accused of spearheading the removal of 12 nominated members from various committees.

The affected MCAs would later report the Majority Leader at the Jubilee party headquarters.

Speaker Joel Maina Kairu and the Majority leader then received a letter warning them against such a move.

The altercation went out of hand forcing Jubilee party Secretary General to summon Karanja and Majority Whip Irene Chebichi 10 days later.

Nakuru Majority leader Stanley Karanja however ignored the summons instead defending himself in a rejoinder.
