Nairobi Women aspirant goes for County speaker’s seat

Change of Mind

Nyamu who lost in the Jubilee primaries to Racheal Shebesh is eying to replace the outgoing speaker Alex Ole Magelo who unsuccessfully contested for the Kajiado West Parliamentary seat.

The youthful Lawyer will be battling out with Benson Mutura of Jubilee who lost his seat to ODM’s George Aladwa.

Others in the race include Augustine Kamande Kamau, Deputy speaker Ken Ngondi , the county public service board vice chairman Vesca Kangongo, outgoing Karura MCA Kamau Thuo, the chief of staff George Wainaina and the incumbent Ole Magelo.

According to the results from the just concluded August polls, Jubilee Party has the majority in the county assembly with a total of 45 seats out of the 85 available.

“I am also lobbying and campaigning, just like other aspirants for the position. As for being a front runner it is too early to say, but watch the space” revealed Ms Nyamu when reached for a comment by NairobiNews

Nyamu and Mutura will be Jubilee front runners for the County Assembly’s speaker seat, but it’s reported that the party will soon zero down to one able candidate.

Ms Nyamu was among Team Nairobi hence her good relationship with Nairobi governor elect Mike Mbuvi Sonko.
