Ndung’u , who in 2018 was appointed to the board of Karuri municipality, said she will unveil her manifesto and political party “in coming months.” “I will be on the ballot paper for Kiambu County governorship. I have a lot to offer Kiambu residents and the new role would allow me to scale up transformative projects that I am undertaking at the grassroots,” she said.

That leader is Agnes Ndung’u.” Others running for the seat are incumbent James Nyoro, former governors Ferdinand Waititu and William Kabogo, Senator Kimani Wamatangi and Thika Town MP Patrick.
