Kabete Constituency by Kenyans247(1): Tue Jan 2020 04:42pm
Kabete Constituency is an electoral constituency within Kiambu County in Kenya that closely neighbors Westlands Constituency in Nairobi County. It is one of twelve constituencies in Kiambu County. According to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), the constituency is number 119 of 290 constituencies in Kenya. This constituency was split in 2012 as by the 2010 constitution on divolution in order to have Kikuyu Constituency and Kabete constituency which was previously one electoral area. The split was necessitated by the need to create better representation with the growth of population within the area.

The previous Member of parliament for Kabete Constituency was Hon George Muchai. Hon. Muchai was shot by unknown assailants in Nairobi on February 7, 2015.[1] The constituency has a population of 140,427 and occupies an approximate area of 60.20 km2. Other than being a member of parliament, Hon. Muchai was also the Deputy Secretary General of the Central Organization of Trade Unions in Kenya. According to the Standard Newspaper dated 10 November 2014, Hon. Muchai had alleged that there was rampant embezzlement, misappropriation and mismanagement of workers deductions which translated into 190 million.[2]

He was succeeded by Ferdinand Waititu who was sworn in on 26 May 2015[3] during a special parliamentary sitting after winning the election in a landslide victory garnering over 90% of the total votes cast.[4] Hon. Waititu is a former Member of Parliament for Embakasi Constituency and is widely known for stopping at no level when it comes to fighting for the rights of the constituents he represents. After being declared the winner after the counting of the votes, he promised to offer good leadership and indicated that during the next elections he shall vie for the post of governor in Kiambu County.
