Speaking to members of the press after casting his ballot, the candidate said that he would work closely with the Kibra poll losers if he is elected the constituency's next member of parliament.

"I am the one who will be elected and I will be ready to work with those who will lose ("Mimi ndiye ntachaguliwa, na niko tayari kufanya kazi na watakoshindwa)," the Amani National Congress (ANC) leader said. 

Eliud Owalo joined the ranks of the Musalia Mudavadi-led ANC party after falling out with former prime minister Raila Odinga.

He resigned from being a member of the ODM party after the Kibra seat was declared vacant by the speaker of the National Assembly Justin Muturi.

The former aide of Raila Odinga is no stranger to the people of Kibra as he has tried to run for the parliamentary seat before.

He has been keen on leveraging on the familiarity that he has with the people of Kibra to win the parliamentary seat, saying that he knows the problems that the constituency's residents are battling with.

The parliamentary is seen as a 3-horse race pitting ANC, ODM, and the governing Jubilee party candidates.
