The incoming MP garnered 24,636 votes against Jubilee candidate McDonald Mariga's 11,230.

Amani National Congress candidate Eliud Owalo emerged third with 5,275 votes. 

Mariga called Imran on Thursday night and conceded defeat before the counting process was complete.

“Hello boss, this is Mariga, I have called to congratulate you. It was a good race. We did not fight. I am ready for lunch, so that we work together,” Mariga told Okoth on the telephone, adding, “We remain friends and you can always count on my support.”

ODM leader Raila Amolo Odinga had asked the supporters to turn up in large numbers to ensure Imran wins the elections

“This is our bedroom, it must be protected and that is why you all must come and vote in large numbers,” Odinga said, “this is your chance to vote the leader you want.

”Even though Ruto has always insisted that the Kibra race was no."

 The exercise was characterized by low voter turn out and alleged voter bribery.

 The contest pitted Raila against Deputy President William Ruto. 

The two are perceived as the major contestants for the presidency in 2022. Raila has, however, not declared interest in the seat.
