Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi ‘Sonko’ has been urged by the Nairobi Women Caucus to nominate a woman as Nairobi Deputy Governor. Led by their chair Dinah Agai¬†lauded the decision to allow Governors to nominate their Deputies when the seat becomes vacant, adding that Governor Sonko has a good track record when it comes to working with women, “We are alive to the fact that our Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko has a long history of working well with women on socio-economic issues,” she said.

She noted that¬†nominating a woman Deputy Governor would set the right precedence towards narrowing the gender gap and will also be a significant step towards embracing gender diversity, “It will improve collaboration, cultivating¬†innovation and creating a much more successful and inclusive city,” she said.
