He said Kibra needed someone who can uphold the late MP, Ken Okoth’s policies, agendas, and legacy.

“What are you leaving for the people who come after you? Leave a legacy of faith, hope, and love because that’s what will last. The ODM Party can’t afford to lose the seat. That’s why we are on the ground,” he added.
