Kihika made the announcement on Monday in Nakuru to set stage for a major political showdown pitting her with the incumbent Lee Kinyanjui,who is defending his seat on a Jubilee Party ticket.
The choice of her running mate was widely expected with the political dynamics of the county and the region in general taken into account.
As a cosmopolitan county, Kikuyu form the majority of Nakuru's voting bloc with the Kalenjin coming second. It is very likely that these are some of the factors that Kihika looked at before settling on Kones to deputise her.
