Deputy President William Ruto on Saturday, November 9, reacted to McDonald Mariga’s win in the Kibra by-election and violence that were meted
In the mini-poll, Mariga garnered 11,230 votes losing to ODM’s Imran Okoth who got 24,636 votes.
Taking to his Twitter, Ruto congratulated Okoth for his victory while acknowledging the efforts of his own team.
He noted that the polls had shown that his political faction was making headways in Raila’s perceived stronghold.
“Pongezi Benard Okoth for Kibra. Congrats Mariga, Team Jubilee and supporters for daring the so-called ‘bedroom’, braving the chaos and violence, to double our vote from 12% (2017) to 26% now.
He observed that ODM’s influenced in the area had reduced from 78% in 2017 to 52%.
Taking note of the numbers, Ruto insinuated that the battle was far from over, “They retained the seat we have served notice.”
DP Ruto also took to his Twitter handle to demand an apology from Raila Odinga after leaders of jubilee party encountered violence in kibra.
“As Kenyans we demand that Tinga/his party unconditionally, unequivocally and publicly RENOUNCE the culture of violence, chaos, terror and gangsterism their signature modus operandi as witnessed in Kibra & unreservedly apologise to victims past and present for their hurt and loss.” DP Ruto said.
On Thursday, November 8, Nyeri Town MP Ngunjiri Wambugu predicted that the statement from Ruto’s team would be along the lines that they had made progress in infiltrating ODM’s stronghold.
“This wasn’t about winning, it was about challenging perceptions. You should compare the 2017 votes and today. We have really done very well. If we can get these kinds of votes in a by-election there, 2022 we are taking the seat,” he opined in a Facebook post.
