Kiambu Governor James Nyoro has named Joyce Wanjiku Ngugi, the widow of former Gatundu South MP Joseph Ngugi, as his deputy.

She is a psychologist counsellor with a Masters degree in Education from Kenyatta University and previously served as the chairperson of the National Council of Children Services.

In 2017, she vied for the Gatundu South parliamentary seat that is currently held by Moses Kuria. She bowed out of the race citing intimidation.

The governor also reshuffled his cabinet.

Last week, Nyoro was rumored to have appointed Caroline Waithera Ndung’u – an alleged employee of ABSA.

Omondi was found dead in his room in India. He traveled for a workshop alongside the Education Committee.
