Wednesday September 4, 2019 - Deputy President William Ruto launched an indirect campaign for McDonald Mariga on Tuesday with regard to the upcoming Kibra by-election, after he toured the area to open a 580-bed dormitory at Moi Girls High School.
The DP was in Kibra just a day after Jubilee Party settled on the ex-footballer as its candidate in the mini poll.
Mariga reportedly scored 500 out of 600 marks boasting a clean A in the interviews.
Ruto addressed Kibra residents and promised to return for the by-election campaigns.
While unveiling the dormitory, Ruto said that the late Ken Okoth's successor must emulate his work in promoting education among Kibra children and indirectly urged residents to consider Jubilee candidate, McDonald Mariga
"Masomo ni ya muhimu nataka muelewe.”
“Vile vile najua vijana hawajaenda shule, ndo maana tunajenga technical college hapa Lang'ata na mashule hapa Lang'ata.”
“Yule ambaye atachaguliwa lazima ashughulike mambo ya shule”
“(Education is very important and this is why we are building technical institutes to equip our jobless youth and whoever is elected must continue with that legacy)," Ruto said.
He promised to return to Kibra this coming Sunday to drum up support for Mariga.
Mariga will face Amani National Congress' Eliud Owalo, Ford Kenya’s Khamisi Butichi and an ODM candidate who is yet to be announced.
