Azimio's Ng'ondi elected Nairobi Assembly Speaker

 

Former Kware MCA Kennedy Ng’ondi has been elected the Nairobi County Assembly Speaker.

Ng’ondi emerged victorious after garnering 68 votes followed by his closest contender Hassan Robow who garnered 55 votes out of the 123 votes cast.

This was the second round of voting.

Ng’ondi trounced his only competitor Hassan Robow with whom they had been shortlisted for the highly coveted position.

In the first round, County Assembly clerk Edward Gichana announced that none of the two attained two-thirds which is 82.

Ng’ondi had 71 while Robow got 52.

He now becomes the fourth assembly speaker after his predecessor Benson Mutura.

"Having attained the majority requirement, I declare Kennedy Ng’ondi as the next County Assembly speaker," announced Clerk Edward Gichana.

Ng’ondi served as a deputy speaker to the late Alex Magelo from 2013-2017.

His first order of business will be to oversee the swearing-in of his deputy speaker.

He now becomes the fourth assembly speaker after his predecessor Benson Mutura.

Clerk Gichana ordered for the ballot papers to be sealed for a period of six months.

The clerk consequently ordered the Sergeant-at-arms to search for Ng’ondi and present him to the assembly.  BY THE STAR
