The wise men say that behind every successful man there must be a woman and for Imran Okoth that woman is his wife, Anne Ithara Okoth, his companion of many years.
Although not much is known about her she was seen by her husband’s side in the just-concluded Kibra by-elections.
Many might wonder why Okoth is called Imran what many do not know is that he is a converted Muslim.
He decided to convert to Islam owing to his upbringing in Kibra where most of his friends were Nubians.
“HE NEVER LEFT KIBRA. HE HAS SPENT HIS WHOLE LIFE THERE. HE SETTLED THERE AND IS MARRIED WITH CHILDREN. THE NAME IMRAN IS NOT AN ALIAS. THAT BECAME HIS NAME AFTER HE BECAME A MUSLIM.”
Imran was declared the winner on Friday morning after garnering 24,636 votes to beat Jubilee’s McDonald Mariga.
Mariga conceded defeat when the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) figures from 40 out of 183 polling stations showed he was second.
