At least four aspirants are jostling to succeed Governor Lee Kinyanjui, who will be seeking a second term. Pundits say negotiated democracy will play a major role in the race for the top seat.
Senator Susan Kihika has declared her intention to run for the top seat and is already shopping for a running mate from the Kipsigis community.
Others who have declared interest in the seat are former senator James Mungai, former National Authority for the Campaign against Alcohol and Drug Abuse chairman John Mututho and Dr Peter Koros of Chama Cha Mashinani (CCM), who came second in the 2017 polls.
The Narc party leader Martha Karua and current women representative Wangui Ngirici, are working hard to ensure they have pushed out Ann Waiguru as the county boss.
Ann Waiguru, who has recently showed her interest to join UDA party will face Ngirici for party nomination.
