There seem to an online campaign for a lady to be Mike Sonko's deputy governor following the resignation of Polycarp Igathe. Nairobi Deputy Governor shocked the entire nation by handing in his resignation, citing frustration by his boss. His resignation raised questions on who will replace him or how the county will move forward without him. Agnes Kagure Kariuki is among the top people being considered to deputy Sonko and Kenyans on twitter have thrown their support behind her. At 36 years of age, she was in the list of top 40 under 40 women in business, she has worked in the insurance sector all her life. Nairobi county top brass is said to have gone for a retreat to consider the position of deputy governor and Kagure's name has featured prominetly Nairobi county is likely to have the first female deputy governor if the latest developments are anything to go by. As earlier reported by TUKO.co.ke, the move by Igathe to resign following a bitter fallout with his boss, Governor Mike Sonko, sent tremors countrywide. His resignation raised a heated online debate as to who would be the ideal candidate to take up his position with many worrying about the fate of the capital city of Kenya.

TUKO.co.ke understands that at 36 years, Kagure who is married with two kids is an insurance expert and a prominent business woman who has already featured in the list of 40 under 40. Moreover, she is among top agents in Kenya and amongst top 500 agents around the world who qualify for the global title of Top of the Table (TOT).
