The race to succeed the Late Paul Koinange is already taking shape barely two weeks after his death, 12 Politicians have reportedly declared their interests to become the next Kiambaa member of parliament.
According to the people daily, Those in the race include businessman-cum-politician Kariri Njama who will be making a second stab, United States-based Raymond Kuria on a third go, governance consultant Charles Munyui and Eric Mutura who are making second and third tiers respectively, Kiambu Liaison Director Damaris Wambui, relative of the late MP and 2017 Woman Rep aspirant Lydia Njeri.
Kariri Njama is best suited to become the next member of parliament considering that he vied in 2017 and lost narrowly to Paul Koinange, however, he has to clear his name over allegations of being Ruto's ally.
Kariri Njama's visit to Ruto's Karen home led to beliefs that he was a close ally of Ruto, this was further intensified when he hosted the second in command, however, Njama has since denied any link with Ruto insisting that he is a Jubilee member and only associated with Ruto when he brought goodies to his people.
Njama's denial comes days after declaring that he will vie for the seat on Jubilee ticket.
