Babu Owino Blasts Mariga For ‘Taking’ Ken Okoth’s Wife

by Musa Abdirahman

Embakasi East MP Babu Owino has blasted Jubilee candidate in the November 7 slated Kibra by-elections McDonald Mariga for allegedly taking late Ken Okoth’s wife.

Through a tweet posted on Wednesday morning, Babu Owino asked Mariga to choose between late Ken Okoth’s wife and his Kibra parliamentary seat.

The youthful MP argued that Mariga was showing a sign of disrespect to the late by hanging around with the woman who had a baby with Ken Okoth.

“This is the lady who had a baby with the late Hon.Ken Okoth.Mariga must choose between the lady or the seat,hauwezi dharau the late Ken by taking both his seat and his wife.Choose one Omwami,” posted Babu Owino.

He was responding to a photo of Mariga while appearing at IEBC offices for clearance before he was barred after his name failed to appear in the voters register.

Anne Thumbi, who is the mother of the late Kibra MP Ken Okoth’s son, was seen sitting next to Mariga during the verification which ended in Mariga being blocked from vying.

However, speaking to a local media last week, Ms Thumbi defended her support for Mariga saying she was nominated to the Nairobi County Assembly by the Jubilee party, hence, her loyalty.

“I was nominated to the Nairobi County Assembly under the Jubilee Party. I, therefore, am obligated to stick with the party’s choice in the race for Kibra parliamentary seat. Jubilee’s choice, as of today, is Mariga, and I needed to show him my support,” said Ms Thumbi.

She, however, declined to give a comment on how well she relates with Imran.

Babu Owino on Wednesday led a team of ODM party in a door to door campaign in Kibra for their candidate Bernard Imran Okoth, who is late Ken Okoth’s brother.
