The current governor of Muranga County is Hon Mwangi Wa Iria who is in his last and final term. Several candidates have come out to outshine each other in the succession race to be the next county Chief.
One person who would make the succession race look tougher is the current Senator Hon Irungu Kang’ata. Irungu is one of the tanga tanga team members and would most likely receive an endorsement from Deputy President Dr William Ruto.
The other person likely to be in the race is the Woman representative Madam Sabina Chege who also got overwhelming votes in the last election. She also stands a chance due to gender equality currently being witnessed in Kenya.
Transport Cabinet Secretary Hon James Macharia is another able man to watch in the race. His influence in the area may also give him an advantage over the other candidates.
The area seems to have a three-horse race that is likely to be seen come to the 2022 general election if they all decide to go for the race.
Though other candidates are also eying the county top job like transport PS Irungu Nyakera and water PS Irungu Wairagu.
Only time will tell who the winner will be.
