A section of Jubilee leaders now want Imran Okoth, the ODM Party candidate in the Kibra by-election, disqualified over alleged electoral malpractice.

Led by Lang’ata MP Nixon Korir and Kikuyu MP Kimani Ichung’wa the leaders accused ODM Party supporters of engaging in violence.

This comes after Jubilee candidate in the Kibra by-election McDonald Mariga’s campaign convoy was pelted with stones on Saturday.

Mariga escaped unhurt during the chaos.

Speaking at PCEA Emmanuel Church in Makina on Sunday, the leaders condemned the attack, accusing their ODM counterparts of inciting youth.

Korir said they would petition the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) to disqualify the ODM candidate.

While the Jubilee MPs were at the church rowdy youth hurled stones shattering windows.

“It is shameful the youths who attacked Mr Mariga’s convoy yesterday have followed us here and destroyed window panes,” said Korir.
