Kenya’s Reggae DJ, Kriss Darlin is set to vie for Kibra MP seat in the forthcoming by-election.
The Kibra seat has been vacant for some weeks now after Ken Okoth succumbed to cancer last month.
His family has been pushing for Raila to nominate one person to represent Okoth’s wishes and fulfill them.
ODM leader and special envoy to AU, Raila Odinga is yet to say a word on the same and potential leaders are now throwing their heads on the highly contested seat.
NTV’s Jamrock presenter, Kriss Darlin has been said to contest and was pictured earlier this morning collecting necessary documents for the race.
