Kibra parliamentary hopeful Imran Okoth's campaign on Sunday received a major shot in the arm as a section of Nairobi Jubilee politicians led by  Nominated MP Maina Kamanda joined him for a church service.

Kamanda was accompanied by former Dagoretti South MP Dennis Waweru and Nairobi County Assembly Speaker Beatrice Elachi.

"Today’s service at PCEA Emmanuel Karanja Road. We all come together to better the lives of the people we serve," Okoth tweeted.

Jubilee's candidate former Harambee Stars forward McDonald Mariga is supported, by and large, by Deputy President William Ruto's allies in spite of being endorsed by President Uhuru Kenyatta at State House.

Jubilee leaders against the candidature of Mariga contend that he is the project of the deputy president, a charge that the forward has strongly denied, saying the decision to contest was a personal one.

President Kenyatta has not appeared in any of the Jubilee candidate's campaigns in Kibra.

Political analysts contend that the candidature of Mariga puts President Kenyatta in a tricky situation since he entered a ceasefire with his erstwhile political adversary veteran opposition leader Raila Odinga.
