In the coming August general elections, we expect a good number of counties to have a female governor. In the 2017 elections, three women were voted in, therefore opening ways for other women who are seeking amidst men in this August general elections. There are counties who have women leading the race and are likely to elect them this time round.
These counties include;
1. Kirinyaga - Anne Mumbi Waiguru or Purity Ngirici. This county has only these two candidates as the top contenders though we have men but they are weak in the race. It will be either Waiguru defending her seat or Wangui Ngirici unseating her.
2. Kitui - Charity Ngilu. She is the current governor who wants to defend her seat. She might manage to defend it. Her closet competitor is former governor Julius Malombe.
3. Kilifi - Aisha Jumwa. She is the current MP for Malindi. She now wants to be their next governor. She seems to be the strongest candidate and is leading this race. Her closet competitors are George Mung'aro and George Kithi.
4. Nakuru - Susan Kihika. She is the current senator for Nakuru City. She is seeking gubernatorial seat with UDA ticket. She hopes to unseat Lee Kinyanjui who is seeking to defend it with Jubilee Party ticket.
5. Kwale - Fatuma Achani. She is seeking this seat and might win it ahead of her competitor Hamadi Boga.
6. Homa Bay - Gladys Wanga. She is their current women representative. She wants the top seat and might win it ahead of her closet competitors
7. Embu - Cecily Mbarire. This is another county that might have a female governor in August.
We wish them all the best.
