The incumbent Senator for Kiambu County Hon Kimani Wamatangi will be contesting for the gubernatorial seat on a United Democratic Alliance Party ticket in the forthcoming general elections. Muoroto FM presenter, Karung'o Wa Thang'wa will run for the Senate seat as he was nominated during the UDA nominations that took place countywide.

Today, Karung'o has been dealt a huge blow by the High Court. The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) has been barred from clearing him ahead of the August general elections. The Court has made the decision since the politician was impeached some years back.

During the administration of former Kiambu County Governor, Ferdinand Waititu, Karung'o was a member of the County Executive Committee. The MCAs of this particular County impeached him together with his boss.

IEBC have been receiving pressure from the ODPP and Civil Societies which have been of the opinion that politicians who have integrity issues should not be allowed to contest for elective seat.
