Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria claims that Media Personality Janet Mbugua has declined an offer to be his Deputy Governor. 

Weeks ago, Moses Kuria had written a post on his social media, asking prospective female candidates willing to be his running mate to send their written expression of interest and comprehensive resumes. 

It said that the candidate must be a resident of Kiambu County and be self-motivated and self-driven.

“The successful candidate must possess a Masters Degree and a proven track record leading a complex organization with at least a 10-year work experience, five of which must be in a senior executive level,” the statement read.

Now, Moses Kuria says that former TV presenter Janet Mbugua stood out as the best candidate but has declined to take up the opportunity. 

"I am shattered. After scoring the highest marks in the talent search for Kiambu Deputy Governor, Janet Mbugua will not be taking up the job due to unforeseen personal emergencies that she has to attend to in the immediate term.

My administration will definitely find a way to benefit from @OfficialJMbugua experience and capacity in the future. I feel the loss. Janet is a huge inspiration for the youth, for professionals, for women and for young mothers of this country, " Kuria announced. 

Moses Kuria is vying for the Kiambu Governor seat on Chama Cha Kazi Party.

Jannet has responded in a tweet saying, "Thanks @HonMoses_Kuria for considering me capable to serve Kiambu County as Dep Gov.

Indeed, active engagement in politics isn't for me at the moment.

I remain available in support of quality service to the good people of Kiambu & all of Kenya, more so vulnerable women & girls."
