Mr Bernard Otieno ‘Imran’ Okoth of the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) is the new MP-elect for Kibra Constituency.
Mr Okoth was declared winner on Friday morning after garnering 24,636 votes to beat Jubilee’s McDonald Mariga, who conceded defeat when the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) figures from 40 out of 183 polling stations showed he was trailing Mr Okoth.
“I want to thank God, my party leader Hon Raila Odinga, leaders who stood by me and Kibra voters. It is now evident money can’t buy leadership. I will serve you diligently and reciprocate the support you have given me,” Mr Okoth said after being declared winner.
“I will start working immediately I’m sworn in and request my opponents to support me in serving the people of Kibra. It is only through unity that Kibra will develop. I support the handshake since I am the first handshake MP,” added Mr Okoth.
