10 Relatives of Billionaire Koinange Family in the Race for Kiambaa MP By-election Seat

The family of the late powerful cabinet minister in Jomo and Moi governments are in a tag of war on the next person to succeed the deceased member of parliament in Kiambaa, Kiambu County. The seat which fell vacant weeks ago after the demise of the serving member of parliament attracted over ten family members from the same family.

According to The Star digital news media, reports indicate that a majority out of the 10 family members are said to have stepped down their ambitions in favor of their eldest sister Lenah Koinange. Part of the family together with a section of elders are said to have settled on Lenah to take the mantle from his brother Paul Koinange and urged the others of differing opinion to respect the decision.

The family are all planning to use the Jubilee party ticket but sources indicate that stakeholders are on high gear negotiating a single candidate from the family to go for the seat unopposed.
