Millicent Omanga has been handed the ticket for the women representative seat.

Sakaja has also settled on ABSA bank Chief Operating Officer James Njoroge Muchiri as his running mate in the gubernatorial race.

The Nairobi Senator said he had been looking at a number of people but Muchiri fit the description he wanted noting that he wanted someone who will deal with trade, markets and digitization of services in the city.

“At least from around the 10 people I was looking at, he has the kind of attributes I would require for a good deputy because our focus is on the economy in Nairobi, so I wanted someone who can deal with trade, markets and digitization of services in the city and he completely fits the bill,” Sakaja said.

Muchiri had sought the United Democratic Alliance (UDA) ticket in the primaries for the Nyandarua governor’s seat but lost out to businessman Kiarie Badilisha.
