Kirinyaga Governor Ann Waiguru has welcomed the Senate leadership changes effected by Jubilee Party in what she says will ensure improved service delivery to Kenyans.
On Tuesday, The Senate effected changes by the ruling Jubilee party replacing Elgeyo Marakwet Senator Kipchumba Murkomen and Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika from their leadership positions.
West Pokot Senator Samuel Poghisio from KANU and Murang’a Senator Irungu Kang’ata from Jubilee Party were named the new Majority leader and Chief Whip respectively.

“I support President Uhuru’s move to bring far-reaching changes in the Senate,” she said.
The Kirinyaga Governor also added that she fully supported the Post coalition agreement entered between Jubilee party and KANU saying that coalition will ensure effective delivery of services.
“We need leadership which will carry out the Party’s vision in the Senate and I would like Kenyans to support the changes,” Waiguru added.
