As the race to succeed the late Kibra MP,ken Okoth, gears up, Nairobi Woman Rep,Esther Passarris, on Monday, reached out to ODM leader, Raila Odinga, to consider the deceased’s brother,Imran Okoth, as the party’s candidate.
“It is my hope and desire that we will allow him to be our candidate as ODM so that he can continue and complete Ken Okoth’s projects, as some are halfway through. Although that is subject to the party making the decision,” Passaris stated after speaking to ODM chair ladies in Nairobi.
Passaris further hit out at other contestants, urging them to wait for the 2022 General Election.
“That way we can have continuity and come 2022, the person who is there can run again or the party can look for other options,” the woman leader spoke out.
Apart from Imran, Raila’s former Chief Campaign Manager,ELIUD OWALO, former Embakasi South MP,Irshad Sumra, former Senator,Elizabeth Ongoro, ODM secretary-general, Edwin Sifuna, and ODM youth leader, Benson Musungu, are said to have interests in the seat.
