Ready, set, go: Race for Kibra MP seat now officially on!


The Speaker of the National Assembly, Justin Muturi, has now declared the Kibra MP seat vacant.

In a gazette notice to the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission(I.E.B.C), Muturi has invoked Section 16(3) of the Elections Act, 2011, putting in motion the process of replacing Mr. Okoth.

The seat fell vacant after former Kibra MP, Ken Okoth died on July, 26, after losing the battle to cancer.

Those speculated to run for the seat include Okoth’s younger brother, Imran Okoth, former Kibra C.D.F. chair, Ketta Onyango, Sarang’ombe M.C.A, Pius K’Otieno, lawyer William Ojijo Obama and former O.D.M strategist, Eliud Owalo.

Okoth’s family will have their eyes set on O.D.M’s leader, Raila Odinga’s, endorsement of Okoth’s brother Imran, whom they say was Ken’s assistant when he was sick.
