Marubu, 30, was the youngest in the race and battled five other candidates, winning with 16,480 votes. She had run in 2017 but lost.
Days after her win, she has since joined deputy president William Ruto's Kenya Kwanza Alliance in a manner that has left several people in surprise.
Her slogan during her political campaigns was Iko Love (there is love) where she stressed the need for the Lamu people to love one another and remain united, a key target she promised to achieve if elected Woman Representative.
On Wednesday, it emerged that President-elect William Ruto had tapped at least eight independent candidates who won parliamentary seats in the August 9, 2022 General Election.
The eight met other Kenya Kwanza elected leaders at the outgoing deputy president’s residence in Karen, Nairobi on Wednesday, August 17.
