From Football to Vying Kibra Seat: Mariga throws himself for the race

Jubilee Party has decided to keep their main competitor in the Kibra Seat a tough run. The party settled on the superstar football player MacDonald Mariga to clinch the seat that became vacant after the demise of Hon. Ken Okoth.

His entry into the seat has led netizens waggle for the better part of the social media. Some are for Mariga candidacy while others are still finding fault in the footballer. Now the race is becoming tight and the ruling party there are feeling the heat.

Those opposing Mariga’s candidature feel that he is Hon. Dr. William Ruto’s project.  If this is the case,it could work negative on his candidature especially to the fanatical fans who are supporting Hon. Raila Odinga.

“I have lived in Kibera, at Karanja, so I know everything about slums and Kibera. I just want to give back to the community. That is all,” he said.

Signals that Mariga could be declared the party’s flagbearer were evident as he was the only hopeful who was accompanied by tens of supporters in branded red ‘Mariga For Kibra’ T-shirts.

They danced outside the Jubilee House, some carrying placards written ‘Mariga Tosha’.
