A nominated member of the Kiambu County Assembly has resigned and quit politics.
Yvonne Waweru announced her resignation on social media on Tuesday, January 5 saying that she will cease being a member of the Assembly on January 15, 2020.
The nominated MCA stated that she intends to go back to her former profession.
Waweru said that she needed time to pursue her career in ocean governance in the Western Indian Ocean region which will not allow me to participate in politics.
“I write this post to inform you that I will cease to be a specially-elected MCA effective from the 15th of January 2021.”
“I intend to go back to my profession in ocean governance in the Western Indian Ocean region which will not allow me to participate in politics and will hopefully allow me to serve my country in a different capacity,” she stated.
As she exits the political scene, Waweru boasted of a number of development projects initiated since her nomination in September 2017.
She noted that her legacy will be the community projects she had initiated in Kiambu County, primarily her home residence of Kabete Constituency.
Waweru further pointed out that her legacy extends to the legislative proposals that she was a part of during the three years she served as an MCA in Kiambu County Assemby.
“This indeed was performed to the best of my ability in view of my limited mandate as a specially-elected MCA,” Waweru said.
The MCA further thanked President Uhuru Kenyatta for giving her the opportunity to serve under the Jubilee party regime.
She becomes the second MCA to resign following the resignation of Makueni MCA Kelvin Mutuku from his elected position last year.
As opposed to Waweru who has totally quit politics, Mutuku resigned following his appointment as the County clerk.
