Embu Governor Martin Wambora has been elected the new Council of Governors Chairman.

Wambora will be deputized by Kisii Governor James Elvis Ongwae.

The Embu Governor takes over from Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya who has been the office holder for the past two years.

Elgeyo Marakwet Governor Alex Tolgos has been elected as the new Chief Whip in council, while Nyeri Governor Mutahi Kahiga has been elected the new Chairman of the Council's Education Committee.

Wambora's election into the powerful position makes him the fifth CoG Chairman.

The first was former Bomet Governor Isaac Ruto, former Meru Governor Peter Munya, Turkana Governor Josephat Nanok and Kakamega Governor Wycliffe Oparanya.
