Before the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, little was known about former Health Chief Adminstrative Secretary, Dr Mercy Mwangangi. But the medic would later become one of the most recognizable faces on Kenyan TV stations as she was giving periodic updates on the disease.
During the same period, the former CAS became one of the most well-known assistant cabinet secretaries in the country.
But with the Jubilee Government out of power and former President Uhuru Kenyatta having exited office, Dr Mwangangi has also quietly left office with President William Ruto having silently fired the holders of the position.
For someone who rose to such fame at the height of COVID-19 pandemic, what does future hold for Dr Mwangangi? Will she bounce back in style and land a powerful position in the Ruto adminstration?
Considering that she comes from a political family, will the former CAS be tempted to make a huge plunge into the murky world of politics?
Her mother, Florence Mwangangi served as Machakos County Assembly Speaker. And in 2022, she was running mate to Machakos gubernatorial hopeful, Nzioka Waita. Or alternatively, should she go back into medical practice? Whatever the case, the 36-year old has a tough decision to make.
