In a competitive final, Angel Mbuthia from Kiambu County emerged as the winner of Ms President Season II beating five other competitors to the title.
Angel won through a popular vote after judges and trainers took 52 of 750 applicants through weeks of leadership academy, rigorous training and other challenges in a show that was aired on KTN Home. The reality TV show took more than 20 weeks to get to the Thursday finals.
“The journey has been quite exciting, with wonderful judges who have been taking us through training in every episode. They have been correcting us and indeed I am better than what I was when I joined the academy,” Angel said after the win.
Asked when she would be running for the presidency, Angela said, “Kenyans should expect to see me soon”.
It is not the first time Angel has been put in the spotlight. She has been vocal on youth and leadership matters for several years.
Angel is a director of the Kenya National Youth Council Board. She was recently elected to serve as chairperson in the first-ever Comesa Youth Advisory Panel.
She is also the Secretary for Gender and International Relations in the All Africa Students Union headquartered in Accra, Ghana.
