Most will be vying for the first time and we can't help but wonder if they will win or not.

Here is the list.

DNG

Media personality Dickson Ngibuini, alias DNG, will run for the Woodley-Kenyatta Golf Course MCA seat.

Declaring his bid, he said he did not vie in 2017 because at the time the ruling party had nothing to offer the youth.
