The star is said to have been handpicked by Deputy President William Ruto as the most favorable candidate to face off with ODM, Ford Kenya and ANC candidates.

“He first sought to know whether the footballer was a registered voter and luckily, Mariga is registered in Starehe Constituency,” a source is quoted by a local daily.

The campaign period for the by-elections will run from Monday, September 9 to Monday, November 4.

The seat fell vacant after the death of Ken Okoth on July 26 after losing a battle with colorectal cancer.
