Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) party has taken to social media to congratulate their candidate Bernard Imran Okoth for “winning” the just concluded Kibra constituency by elections.
The party however seem to have relied on the results that have been doing rounds on social media, which Kibra constituency returning officer Beatrice Muli had earlier disowned.
“Congratulations Bernard Otieno Okoth Imran for your resounding victory in the just concluded by-election in Kibra. We give praise and thanks to the Lord for your victory. To your worthy competitors, we appreciate their effort. Zidi kutenda Mheshimiwa,” tweeted ODM.
The tallying process is however ongoing, with Imran leading.
According to the results that have been heavily shared by ODM Secretary General Edwin Sifuna, ODM’s Bernard Okoth garnered 33649 followed by Jubilee’s McDonald Mariga who has garnered 17651 votes. Coming third is ANC Eliud Owalo with 7860 then Ford Kenya’s Khamisi Butichi with 470.
IEBC has not announced the official results.
