Murang'a county is one of the five counties in Central region of Kenya and it borders the counties of Nyeri, Kiambu, Nyandarua, Kirinyaga, Embu and Machakos. The race to succeed the outgoing governor Mwangi Wa Iria has been taking shape as we approach the 2022 general elections.
The prestigious Murang'a county gubernatorial seat has attracted the likes Water PS Joseph Wairagu, Engineer Henry Gaate, fomer Kigumo Member of Parliament Jamleck Kamau, Irungu Nyakera, Murang'a county Senator Irungu Kang'ata, Murang'a Women Representative Sabina Chege and Moses Mwangi who finished second in both 2013 and 2017 general elections.
The aspirants have already started to move around the county to market their manifestos and convince more voters to vote for them. From the look of things, the stiff competition will likely be among Irungu Kang'ata, Sabina Chege and Moses Mwangi. Irungu Kang'ata has been a close confidant of Deputy President William Ruto and that gives him an added advantage over other aspirants.
On the other hand, Moses Mwangi has a good knowledge of the ground because he was once an aspirant for the same post in previous elections. On the side of Sabina Chege, she has been serving as a Women Representative and she can use that position to come up with projects for women and youths before the general elections. All the best to all aspirants who are vieing for Murang'a county gubernatorial seat.
