Murang’a gubernatorial aspirant Dr. Irungu Kang’ata has dropped his proposed running mate, Winfred Mwangi, 53, for 29-year-old Stephen Mburu Munania in a last-minute move to meet the clearance deadline.

Mr. Kang’ata had on Sunday been denied clearance by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission because Dr. Mwangi, a don at the University of Nairobi, failed to resign by the February 9 deadline.

Kang’ata took to Facebook to announce a new running mate in a post labeled as “a joint press statement” with Dr Mwangi.

Dr. Kang’ata however confirmed that Dr. Mwangi will remain part and parcel of the UDA Muranga chapter, and she will continue to offer her services as an expert in land matters. She will head our UDA campaigns
