The Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) is set to embark on a door to door campaign in a bid of bolstering the chances of its candidate Imran Okoth in the Kibra by-election.

In a post on Twitter Saturday morning, the party's secretary general Edwin Sifuna said the party would engage in prayer before embarking on the votre hunt.

"Kicking off the the day's campaigns with prayers at the Ngong Road SDA, Joseph Kang'ethe Primary. We will be moving door to door in Makina ward later this afternoon. See you shortly!" The ODM secretary general wrote on Twitter.

The door to door approach is part of the strategy that has been embraced by candidates in the Kibra parliamentary race aimed to endear the candidates to the electorate by creating the impression that they are close to them. 

Imran Okoth will be seeking to succeed his late brother who succumbed to a run with cancer treatment.

He will be slugging it out with Amani National Congress (ANC) candidate Eliud Owalo, Ford-Kenya's candidate Ramadhan Butichi and the governing Jubilee party former Harambee Stars forward McDonald Mariga.

Imran Okoth's biggest challenge, according to political analysts emanate from Jubilee's McDonald Mariga and ANC's Eliud Owalo, who was a former aide of veteran opposition and ODM leader Raila Odinga.
