International footballer MacDonald Mariga has come out in public since he lost to Imran Okoth in the highly contested Kibra by-election.
Mariga who was fronted by the deputy president William Ruto came in second with over 10,000 votes in the ODM zone.
For Ruto, this was a success in ‘testing waters’ before he launches his 2022 presidential bid which is a do or die for political rivals.
Mariga openly congratulated Imran and promised to partner with him to serve the people of Kibra.
After laying low for quite some time, Mariga was pictured watching a live match at the Moi International Sports Center, Kasarani.
