Jubilee MP Maina Kamanda who was with the MP during his campaign period was present at the ceremony as he stood next to him.

ODM congratulated Imran Okoth promising to have his back wishing him all the best as he settles down to serve the people of Kibra.

Several other leaders including Kamukunji MP Yusuf Hassan congratulated Imran terming it as an emotional day in his life.

The closely contested seat saw the ODM candidate win with a total of 24,636 votes against his closest rival and Jubilee candidate McDonald Mariga who came second with 11,230 votes.

Violence and cases of bribery were reported on the voting day as both sides maintained innocence committing them to a free and fair election.

The bedroom politics came to a wrap when Mariga admitted defeat before the final figures were released by IEBC.
