President Uhuru is backing Imran, claims Jubilee leaders


Some Jubilee leaders have claimed that President Uhuru Kenyatta is backing ODM candidate Imran Okoth in the November 7 Kibra by-election.
Led Nominated MP Maina Kamanda, the leaders said Imran will win the election since he has the backing of the head of state.
Kamanda said Jubilee candidate Macdonald Mariga is being fronted by people out to undermine the handshake between Uhuru and ODM leader Raila Odinga.
“I cannot defy my party boss who is President Uhuru Kenyatta. Imran is the candidate supported by everyone behind the handshake,” said Kamanda at PCEA Kibera parish.
Kamanda further said that Uhuru will not be seen in any of Mariga’s campaign.
“You will not see President Kenyatta coming here to campaign for Mariga because he is supporting Imran, “he said.
His sentiments were supported by other jubilee leaders among them Maoka Maore (MP Igembe North), Nairobi County Assembly Speaker Beatrice Elachi and former Dagoretti South MP Dennis Waweru.
Mariga’s candidacy has elicited mixed reactions in the Jubilee Party despite getting the President’s endorsement.
