Thursday September 12, 2019-Ex-footballer McDonald Mariga will regret ever joining politics and associating himself with Deputy President William Ruto.

This is after former Prime Minister Raila Odinga’s ODM party called for his immediate arrest and prosecution for faking his age and forging a voter’s card.

Raila, through ODM leader from Nyamira now wants DCI to arrest footballer McDonald Mariga and interrogate him over possible forgery.

Dennis Maina, the ODM Youth Leader, said the former footballer is being used by Raila Odinga's detractors to waste time in Kibra by-election race.

IEBC rejected Mariga's application on Tuesday, arguing that he is not in voter register. The former Harambee Stars midfielder has since appealed.

But according to Maina, the registration card Mariga presented varies from those given by IEBC, adding that his national ID card is also a suspect.

"He's being used to drag us in Kibra polls. By now, he should have just quit the race. He registered late and the voter card could be having issues," he wrote.

"Infact, DCI should question him over his ID. A born 1987 should not be in possession of an ID card with that serial number,” he added.

DCI is probing the issues surrounding documents presented by the former footballer to IEBC.
