The months-long wait for the swearing in of Kiambu deputy governor ended on Wednesday when Joyce Wanjiku took oath of office in a low-key ceremony presided by Kiambu High Court judge, Christine Meoli.

 Wanjiku was in February appointed by Governor James Nyoro, who took over the county leadership following the impeachment of Ferdinand Waititu over gross misconduct, abuse of power and corruption allegations.

 Speaking after her swearing-in, Wanjiku said she will diligently work with Nyoro to restore and advance the public trust the people of Kiambu have in their county government.

“I trust we can work together harmoniously for the greater good of our residents,” she said.

Wanjiku holds a Master’s degree in Education from Kenyatta University.

Until her appointment, she was the chairperson of the National Council for Children Services.
