Mariam Sharlet Akinyi: Sonko’s aide who eyed Msambweni MP seat

The Kenyanpost news

Sharlet Mariam, a 29-year-old woman from Ukunda in Kwale County, is a little known female activist based in Msambweni where she runs a charity organisation.

Sharlet who previously worked as Head of Protocol at Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko’s office, has now declared her bid for the Msambweni parliamentary seat which fell vacant after the death of area MP Suleiman Dori of ODM on March 9.

The youthful woman activist will however face an uphill task in her quest to represent the people of Msambweni Constituency considering the number of political heavyweights who have already declared support for preferred candidates.

Sharlet who enjoys the support of Sonko is planning to vie the seat on an ODM ticket, but she’s facing stiff competition from other party members in ODM.
