Lamu Governor Issa Timamy has been appointed the Amani National Congress acting party leader.
In a communication by secretary general Simon Gikuru, Timamy had been nominated to take leadership of the party by its Council Bureau.
“The ANC Council Bureau has since nominated Hon. Governor Issa Abdallah Timamy as the acting Party leader in accordance with the ANC party constitution,” he said.
“The ANC Party wishes H.E Mudavadi God’s blessings in his service as Prime Cabinet Secretary and heartily welcomes Gov. Issa Timamy into his new role as party leader.”
Mudavadi announced during vetting that he had stepped down as the party leader following nomination to the Cabinet.
He was nominated by President William Ruto.
Prior to taking over reigns of the party, Timamy was one of Mudavadi’s five deputy party leaders at ANC.
