 Ruto politicians abandon Mariga at the hour of need



Jubilee candidate in the Kibra by-election McDonald Mariga has been reduced to a lone ranger with reports that his fierce rival in the race Imran Okoth of ODM is doing well on the ground.

Mariga has been left mostly with hired private security detail unlike previously when a host of Deputy President William Ruto allied MPs followed him in their numbers to every event.

Ruto MPs and other prominent politicians have feared venturing in Kibra to show solidarity to Mariga following earlier ugly incident where some leaders including Osca Sudi and Bonny Kwahwale were literally chased from the polling stations.

However opposition Chief Raila Odinga is said to be laughing all the way to the bank following positive updates trickling from ODM network center in Kibra.
