Former footballer Mariga has done the unthinkable . He decided to visit the wife of the Deputy President for anointing service. He just knelt down ready to be anointed as he prepared for elections this month.
The Mariga candidature has raised questions in the race. Though through his overwhelmiing support some people claim, he has never voted in Kenya yet he wants to be voted in the by-elections after the demise of Ken Okoth.
The seat was declared vacant after the demise of Ken. His brother Imran is trying tough to retain his brother seat.
The seat has attracted members of the NASA family to ensure they also partake the cake that has all the years been seen as the bedroom of the Orange Party.
Will the anointing poured upon Mariga work this time round for him come 7th November? Only time will tell.
