The Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) today announced that it has set 7th November, 2019 as the date for the Kibra Constituency MNA by-election. Gazette Notice No. 7378

There have been a number of suggestions by the residents of Kibra Constituency and also leaders regarding who is suitable to take the place of the late Hon. Ken Okoth. Nairobi Woman Representative, Esther Passaris proposed Kibra MP Ken Okoth’s brother, Imram Okoth, as the best candidate to lead the constituency.

She asked ODM to consider Ken’s brother for the seat, “The ODM position is, we are waiting for people to declare interest then we will have a nomination. My sincere hope is that we look at Ken’s family. I know Ken’s brother used to run the CDF and it will be my desire he be allowed to be our candidate as ODM so that he can complete the projects because he was the CDF manager,” she said.

Ukweli party on the other hand proposed Editar Ochieng as their candidate for the seat.
