Catherine Mukenyang was on Wednesday elected the new West Pokot County Assembly Speaker; the very first woman to hold this office in the North Rift region.

Mukenyang, who had contested for the women rep seat on a Kanu ticket, defeated other candidates to win the highly coveted seat.

She will be taking over from Robert Katina who had sought re- election.

County Assembly Speakers are responsible for presiding at all meetings of the assembly and are also charged with the overall authority for the preservation of order in the assembly and the enforcement of the rules of procedure of the assembly.
