Deputy President William Ruto has dismissed claims that the Kibra by election is a supremacy battle between him and ODM leader Raila Odinga.
According to the DP, Kibra residents must be wary of tactics meant to be ‘confuse’ them.
“Watu wasikuje wakawachanganya ati pale Kibra iko mashindano kati ya Raila na Ruto na Musalia na wengine,” he said.
The DP maintained that the by-election is a contest between the Jubilee candidate MacDonald Mariga, Eliud Owalo (ANC), Bernard Imran Okoth (ODM) and the other 22 candidates.

Dr. Ruto further assured Kibra residents that the candidate they elect on November 7 to replace the late Ken Okoth will be respected.
