Wednesday September 4, 2019 - Nominated MP, Maina Kamanda, has called the Jubilee Party candidate in the Kibra by- election, Macdonald Mariga, a Deputy President William Ruto project.
In a statement to Kenyans on Wednesday evening, Maina, who is opposed to Ruto’s Presidency in 2022, claimed that Mariga has been imposed on people by Ruto to derail the handshake between President Uhuru Kenyatta and ODM leader, Raila Odinga.
“The candidate Jubilee Party picked has been imposed on the party by Ruto.”
“He is Ruto’s candidate and not Jubilee’s.”
“I am for a candidate who will be announced by ODM," Kamanda, who is also the former Starehe MP, stated.
Kamanda’s sentiments come just a day after Gatundu South MP, Moses Kuria, declared his opposition to Mariga's candidature saying that the football star should stick to football even as he pitched for ODM youth leader, Benson Musungu.
Kuria said Mariga should concentrate on football matters and should avoid joining the dirty game of politics.
