“I am committed to working with like-minded leaders in the county and national government to ensure peace and development that Nyandarua yearns for is realized.

“When I look at the gaps in Nyandarua, I have identified insecurity as a hindrance to development. I believe the knowledge I have and passion for service delivery will help me work with other leaders to make and impact in the county,” Kariuki said while declaring her candidature.
