Mike Sonko shortlists 4 women for Polycarp Igathe’s job

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko says he is ready to nominate a new deputy governor to replace Polycarp Igathe who resigned from the position in January.

Mr Sonko on Wednesday said he had whittled down his long list of 10 to four names and he is only waiting to consult with Jubilee Party leadership on who to pick.

Those in the running are former Starehe MP Margaret Wanjiru, corporate guru Agnes Kagure, lawyers Karen Nyamu and Jane Weru.

“I prefer a woman for the position,” he said in an interview with a local radio station.

“I have four names in mind but I am waiting for consultations with top Jubilee party leadership who are my bosses to see who to choose.”
