Two professionals, Leina Mpoke (Kajiado) and Peter Mugo (Ngong) were on Monday elected to serve as chairmen of two municipality boards in the county.
Joseph Lenku with elected Ngong Municipality Board Chair Architect Peter Mugo.
The election of Mugo, and architect by profession, was a win for nominated MCA Onesmus Ngogoyo against MP Joseph Manje, who had proposed the election of Caroline Chege.
Ngogoyo called KNU immediately Mugo was overwhelming picked with 6 votes against Chege’s 3, and said a road map for 2022 Kajiado North elections had been drawn.
“I supported a professional and an architect for that matter while my opponent had settled for a clueless person who cannot understand how municipalities are planned,” said Ngogoyo.
Chege, who failed to be approved by county assembly after she was nominated by Lenku as his minister for failing to produce academic documents, will now serve as a member of the board.
Ngogoyo did not specify the seat he will be contesting in 2022 although during the thanks giving for Kaputiei North MCA Joshua Olowuasa in Isinya on Sunday he indicated he will be in Deputy President William Ruto’s political camp.
In the Kajiado election held on the same day, Mpoke who is veterinary doctor won with a simple majority and he will be the man to call the shots in seeking funding to set up the new municipality.
In the same election Leah Sopiato beat Anne Ogoti in Ngong to win the vice chair position, while in Kajiado town Eunice Leshunet was picked as vice chair.
