Benson Mutura Kangara is the speaker of the Nairobi County Assembly. He was unanimously elected as the Speaker of Nairobi County Assembly after receiving 99 out of 122 votes and succeeded Beatrice Elachi from the seat.
Mutura also served as the Member of Parliament in Makadara constituency.
The speaker is acknowledged after his short stint as acting governor after former Governor Mike Sonko got ousted.
During his tenure, he reorganised the cabinet in an effort to improve service delivery to the residents of Nairobi.
He also partnered with Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) to distribute food supply to informal settlements.
Recently, he adjourned County Assembly proceedings indefinitely after more than 40 members of the County Assembly (MCAs) had tested positive for Covid-19.
