CONGRATULATIONS TO IMRAN OKOTH ON BEING DECLARED THE WINNER IN THE KIBRA PARLIAMENTARY BY-ELECTIONS
I congratulate Imran Okoth on being declared the winner in the Kibra Parliamentary by-elections.
My position has always been and remains that the Kibra Parliamentary by-elections was to be contested on the platform of ideas as opposed to that between personalities and personal vendetta.I still hold the same view as at today.
I did also mention many a time during the campaigns that we would only have one person from among the 24 candidates declared the winner. To me it is all about the public good of the people of Kibra.It was never going to be about the egocentric interests of any individual, least of all Eliud Owalo.
Although we witnessed incidents of heavy voter intimidation and massive bribery in the tail-end of the campaigns, its incumbent upon us to accept the results the way they are and move forward for not only unity of the people but the greater good of Kibra constituency and Kenya at large.
I sincerely thank my supporters for standing with me during the campaigns. I also thank my Party Leader HE Hon. Wycliffe Musalia Mudavadi ;the entire leadership, rank and file of the ANC Party for the cooperation and support accorded to me during the campaigns.
Finally, I appeal to the entire Kibra community to now put the elections behind and move forward in unity devoid of any temporary or artificial divisions that may have arisen amongst our people during the campaigns.
Long life Kibra
