Popular Reggae DJ, Kris Darlin took the interwebs by storm when he knelt before Hon. Raila Odinga begging him to choose his as the right candidate for ODM for the Kibra Constituency By-elections.
“I have heard that there are many young men in Parliament fighting Baba (Raila), allow me as their fellow youth to go fight them in there as you wait to fight in 2022,” he said while kneeling before Odinga. “Let them shoot me, if it means that you remain and lead in 2022, I ask that you hold my hand Baba,”
ODM Party will on Saturday August 31, 2019 hold its nominations ahead of the Kibra Member of Parliament by-election.
ODM leader Raila Odinga made the announcement yesterday at a rally in Kibra in which he also revealed that at least 26 aspirants will take on each other for the party ticket.
Among those expected to seek the ODM ticket in the race include; Benson Musungu (ODM National Youth Coordinator), Imran Okoth (late MP Ken Okoth brother and PA), Reggae DJ Kriss Darlin, Sigar Agumba, Peter Orero (Dagoretti High School Principal), and Ochieng Jera.
Odinga’s daughter Rosemary Odinga had been the talk of the nation as some thought that Hon Raila will give the position to her. However it comes as ablow to many since she is not vying for the position.
Well, I don’t see the problem in kneeling down. Kriss Darling needed to prove himself at the moment! In a podium like that & being new in the game, you must find a way to be defferent. I wish him plus other candidates well! Kibra politics not a joke.
