A Kibera court official has joined the already crowded Kibera by-election, whose date is yet to be announced.

Wiliam Ojijo Obama declared his candidature on Friday.

Speaking to the Star in Kibera, Obama said he was born a Kibera and was keen to ensure residents are not dominated by the outsiders.


“I have decided to join the race because I am shocked by how things are happening. I am seeing outsiders crowding Kibera on the ground that they want to succeed former MP Ken Okoth, I want to say that I am in the race to stay,” he told the Star.
