Kabogo's lawyer elected speaker

27 March 2013, 16:12 Wangui Joseph

During the just concluded County assemblies speaker elections, in central Kenya the seats were clinched by lawyers only among them one woman. 

In Kiambu County, Governor William Kabogo got another smile following his personal lawyer Nick Githinji Ndichu’s victory.

Githinji who was enjoying his client’s support (Kabogo) got the seat after massively defeating Erick Kiriko. The assembly consists of 60 elected County Representatives who 57 of them were elected under TNA party.

Murang’a County Representatives went for Nduati  Kariuki who defeated former Kandara MP Joshua Toro. Nduati, ex Maragua MP garnered 22 votes against Toro’s 13 votes.

It was a blow to Toro for he had also lost in the County Governor race after being floored by Francis Mwangi Wa Iria, therefore will remain in the political coldness.

In Nyeri County the seat went to David Mwangi Mugo, a Nairobi based lawyer. He got 17 votes against his counter part lawyer James Gichuhi Mwangi who had 13 votes.

The swearing in event was presided over by Nyeri Courts Chief magistrate Wilbroadah Juma.

In Kirinyaga County, the 20 ward Representatives opted for a woman to take the seat. Lawyer Ann Wangechi took the seat after slightly beating former Ndia MP James Kibicho.

She got 14 votes while Kibicho managed to garner only six votes.

Nyandarua County Representatives took lawyer Ndegwa Wahome , a Nyahururu based lawyer to be the first speaker. He defeated Susan Murage who managed to get five votes compared to Ndegwa’s 20 votes.
