CORD leader Raila Odingaâ€™s son Fidel has broken his silence over claims he is planning to run for the Kibra parliamentary seat.
In an exclusive interview with local media, Fidel called on the public to let MP Ken Okoth complete his term.
â€œThe Kibra MP is doing a good job and the people there respect him,â€ Fidel said on the phone.
â€œThere is no need to start campaigning in Kibra now but 2017 is a different story.â€
Fidel said he is not fighting Okoth and cautioned â€œinterested partiesâ€ against putting the people of Kibra in an election mood.
Raila represented the larger Langâ€™ata constituency as MP from 1992 to 2013.
The constituency is now divided into Langâ€™ata, represented by John Olum, and Kibra, by Okoth.
Former head of Railaâ€™s presidential campaign secretariat, Eliud Owalo, has also declared interest in the Kibra seat with already his boots on the ground.
