Started as a rumor and it came to be. Footballer cum politician McDonal Mariga is now one of the contestants of Kibera legislative seat. A section of Jubilee party members however have come out to contradict the decision on making the footballer the Jubilee flag bearer.
The vocal Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria alongside nominated MP Maina Kamanda have claimed that Mariga won the nomination because he is Deputy President William Ruto’s pet project vowing never to support him.
“The candidate Jubilee Party picked has been imposed on the party by Ruto. He is Ruto’s candidate and not Jubilee’s. I am for a candidate who will be announced by ODM,” stated Maina Kamanda.
Kuria declared his support for ODM’s Youth Coordinator Benson Musungu should he win during the primaries on August 7th. He was backed up by Johnson Sakaja who said he would support ODM in honor of the “handshake”.
