The Nairobi Woman Rep seat attracted six other candidates including Rahab Ndambuki, Nadya Khan, Teresia Omolo, Winnie Wainaina, Rosemary Macharia and Khadija Theuri who collectively managed about three per cent of the votes. 

Esther Passaris ran for the same seat during the 2013 General Election and lost to Rachel Shebesh.
