Tuesday August 27, 2019-Deputy President William Ruto is reportedly burning the midnight oil trying to come up with a best formula of humiliating NASA leader, Raila Odinga, during the Kibra by- election scheduled for November 7.
Kibera seat fell vacant following the death of Ken Okoth last month.
Now Raila Odinga, who is the region’s political kingpin is preparing to front a formidable candidate to compete with Jubilee candidate.
Though, Raila Odinga is yet to appoint the candidate who will fly the ODM flag in the by –election, Ruto is said to have approached some notable candidates to fly the Jubilee Party flag.
The DP is said to have approached former Kenyan international midfielder McDonald Mariga to be Jubilee candidate in Kibra.
But in a rejoinder, Jubilee Secretary General, Raphael Tuju denied that the party had approached Mariga to fly the Jubilee Party flag in Kibra by election.
“Some busy body somewhere is trying to do something I don’t understand. I will investigate,” Tuju said.
Mariga, who won the Italian league and the UEFA Champions League titles with Inter Milan in 2011, was unavailable for comment.
