Orange Democratic Movement party leader on Tuesday held a closed-door meeting with ten aspirants who participated in Kibra by-election nominations.
Imran Okoth, a brother to former area MP Ken Okoth, managed to beat nine candidates on Saturday to win the ODM ticket ahead of November 7th polls.
Mr Okoth, who had been heckled a week earlier, shocked top contenders including Dagoretti High School principal Peter Orero, who was at pole position to clinch the ticket.
"Thank you to all ODM party members in Kibra for conducting yourselves like the democrats we have always known you to be. Thank you for your patience in the face of various challenges as you voted today. Congratulations ndugu Imran Okoth," wrote Edwin Sifuna.
And on Tuesday, the party confirmed that Mr Odinga was meeting the candidates, a move that aims at uniting them ahead of the campaigns.
"PL @RailaOdinga has arrived at Orange for the presentation of the certificate to the party candidate in the Kibra by election. He is currently meeting aspirants who took part in the nomination," read a tweet from the party.
An insider says Mr Odinga requested for urgent meeting with all aspirants to listen to their feedback on the process of nominations. He was in Ethiopia during Saturday's exercise.
Further, he said, Odinga was concerned about their unity given that Orero has already threatened to move to court to challenge the results.
"He knows the danger of cracks within and that's why he summoned all of them. He wants the entire team to rally behind the winner to avoid possible split," said the insider.
Jubilee party fielded former footballer McDonald Mariga while ANC settled for former aide of Mr Odinga, one Eliud Owalo. Ford Kenya fielded Ramadhan Khamisi.
