‘Dark forces’ behind Mariga Kibra candidature, MP claims


Kisumu Woman Rep Rosa Buyu has claimed there are some ‘dark forces’ pushing Macdonald Mariga to vie for Kibra parliamentary seat that fell vacant after the death of Ken Okoth.
She questioned the intentions behind Mariga’s August 26 registration as a voter.
Mariga was on Monday cleared by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to run saying he is a registered voter.
But the ODM MP now says though he has been approved, he appears to have solely done it to be able to vie in Kibra and not for any other reason.
The County MP said Mariga has never voted in Kenya, making his sudden change of heart dubious.
“Mariga has never bothered to register as a voter in this country and therefore has never voted, the only reason he registered is because he wanted to vie in Kibra. Is that really the spirit of the law?” she posed.
Mariga will square it out with ODM’s Imran Okoth, ANC’s Eliud Owalo, Ford Kenya’s Khamisi Butichi among others.
