Kibra By-Election: We don’t know his real age, but McDonald Mariga is cleared to run!
“Jubilee party nominee MacDonald Mariga who was today cleared by the Dispute Resolution Committee to vie for the Kibra MNA by election has been issued with a nomination certificate by the Returning officer” (Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission, 16.09.2019).
Well, we don’t know the real age of the Jubilee Party MP Candidate for Kibra By-Election. If one of his registered age is true, than his younger than his youngest brother, which is a miracle that isn’t even biblical.
Well, we couldn’t expect that Wafula Chebukati is totally honest and cares about proper protocol, even if his loyal buddy Ezra Chiloba is appointed elsewhere. The IEBC is still a den of thieves, only with less of famous faces for now.
That Mariga is eligible to run and stand for MP now, he has to battle the candidate from Orange Democratic Movement Imran Okoth. A contest where the ODM is supposed win in a cake-walk, as the previous international footballer, lack of care for elections and politics in general. His like this weird pawn, that someone planted, but don’t know how to play. Not like McDonald doesn’t know have to deal with this either.
McDonald is not only battling himself, his lack of credibility, but also to show finesse and character. Secondly, we wonder where he stands on anything, what matters to him and such. Not that he has a history of voting, neither being registered to vote. Therefore, he hopes people isn’t as oblivious to the political game nor the territory his eligible to run in.
His like the rich foreigner coming in like tourist and asking for the representation. It is weird that the Jubilee didn’t have anyone else. Unless, McDonald was able to buy the candidacy and thinking because his has a famous name and played as an international player. He could easily get recognized and therefore automatically MP.
That is how it seems, but surely, the man should drop some verified documents to the public. We don’t know his age, his registration or his proper procedure to be a candidate. That is why Chebukati had to bless him with a “Go-Sign”.
McDonald really has to be wise now, but his team haven’t been so in the beginning. So why should it be so to the end?
The way it starts, is usually how it finish. Except some baby-mamas, some rumours and some random quotes spiralling in Githeri media like its no tomorrow. Peace.
