In Summary
  • In August last year, the governor drew up a list which featured four women namely former Starehe MP Margaret Wanjiru, corporate guru Agnes Kagure and lawyers Karen Nyamu and Jane Weru.

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko will name his deputy Friday, a whole year after technocrat Polycarp Igathe left in a huff.

And the deputy will be a woman, as he had earlier hinted in a list he had drawn up.

“A reshuffle is a must in any government. Even the president did a reshuffle in his Cabinet. By Friday, I will name my cabinet and nominate the deputy governor,” Mr Sonko said.

The governor has been on the spot over the delay in filling the deputy governor’s post and the exodus among his Cabinet members.

In August last year, the governor drew up a list which featured four women namely former Starehe MP Margaret Wanjiru, corporate guru Agnes Kagure and lawyers Karen Nyamu and Jane Weru.

This was later in October whittled down to Ms Nyamu and Ms Weru. However nothing has happened since.
