Blow For DP Ruto as Buzeki ditches Mariga for Imran Okoth
ODM party candidate in Kibra by-election Imran Okoth could be headed for an earlier lead after popular Rift Valley politician Zedekiah Bundotich alias Buzeki threw his weight behind his candidature.
Buzeki, who felt out with Deputy President William Ruto in May 2019 has currently been out of most political scenes leaving his supporters wondering whether the influential businessman had quietly leaped back to Ruto’s camp.
But on Sunday, Buzeki, who ditched William Ruto for Isaac Rutto’s Chama Cha Mashinani party, announced that he was fully behind Imran Okoth’s candidature in Kibra owing to the fact that Imran successfully ran the constituency when his brother Kenn Okoth was sick and outside the country seeking medication.

“IMRAN kept KIBRA going when KEN was sick. Endelea Na KAZI . Tai ole Tai (Continue with the work. Forever forward),” posted Buzeki on his Twitter account.
