Kenya: Voters to elect first female senators

Nairobi — Susan Kihika and Margaret Kamar are steps away from becoming the first elected female Senators in Kenya.

The two are currently commanding unassailable leads with Jubilee Party’s Kihika leading with 618,788 votes ahead of ODM’s Samuel Ogada’s 54,445 votes in Nakuru.

In Uasin Gishu, Kamar of the Jubilee Party is leading with 218,789 votes against Robert Rotich’s 83,670 who was vying as an Independent candidate.

Professor Kamar served as a Higher Education Minister and as a Member of Parliament representing Eldoret East Constituency during Mwai Kibaki’s presidency.

On the other hand, Kihika has a background in political science and law, and has been serving as the Nakuru County Speaker
