Huruma Member of County Assembly (MCA) Lucy Chomba has landed a new role at the County Assembly of Uasin Gishu.
Mrs. Chomba was elected a few months ago to be the new MCA in a hotly contested Huruma Ward by-election that was held following the death of her husband Peter Kiiru Chomba.
In a communication to the Uasin Gishu County Assembly members who resumed their sittings on Tuesday, Assembly Speaker David Kiplagat said the Huruma MCA had been elected to be the new chair of the Committee of Information, Communications, and Technology (ICT) and e-government.
Her appointment was confirmed by the chairman of the Uasin Gishu County Assembly selection committee.
“In accordance to standing order number 14, the committee on ICT and e-government on Wednesday 27, October 2021 elected Hon. Lucy Chomba MCA Huruma ward to be the chair of the said committee,” Kiplagat announced.
“I wish her well in the new position and congratulations. I hope you will be able to executive your mandate without fear or favor,” he added.
The Huruma MCA starts her role immediately as she hopes to follow in the footsteps of her late husband who was known for fighting and protecting the interests of traders and the minority community in the county.
The late MCA died in October 2020 as a result of Covid-19 complications, having served as ward representative for two terms as well as a councilor in the defunct Eldoret Municipal Council.
Her wife, while taking over the leadership after winning the by-election pledged to continue with the work that her husband had initiated.
