On Wednesday during a live interview on Citizen TV’s JKL, Atwoli predicted an easy win for Imran in Kibra. The trade unionist stated that Jubilee’s Macdonald Mariga does not stand a chance against Imran who is seeking to take over from his late brother Ken Okoth.
According to Atwoli, Jubilee were wasting their resources on Mariga who he referred to as a ‘Wrong Horse’.
“I have never predicted something that never came to pass, by 10 am, Imran will be the MP for Kibra, take it to the bank,” Said Atwoli
ODM Deputy Party leaders, Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho and Kakamega County Chief Wycliffe Oparanya are also expected to join Imran. The duo will conduct door to door campaigns for their Party’s candidate.
A section of leaders from Jubilee who are part of Kieleweke are also expected to join the Imran Campaign Brigade.
Party Leader Raila Odinga will join the rest on November 3 when ODM hold’s a Mega rally for Imran at the Kamukunji Grounds.
