The family of former soccer maestro MacDonald Mariga now wants him to defect from Jubilee deputy president William Ruto’s faction to Raila Odinga led ODM party.
Apart from the family, his supporters are also pressuring him Ruto after a blistering defeat in the recently held Kibra by-election.
The argument is, Kibra is an ODM zone where the population of Luhya community has been instrumental in helping Luos land the slot.
Since the introduction of multi-party politics, the seat has been in hands of Luos as Mps.
The Luhya voters in Kibra want 2022 to be a payback time and to them Mariga being a Luhya must be fronted by ODM.
