Former Harambee Stars icon, McDonald Mariga, has come out to clear his name following reports that he had hired goons to disrupt opposition leader Raila Odinga’s visit to Kibra.

The allegations were made by Azimio la Umoja – One Kenya Coalition politicians who claimed that Mariga was behind the chaos that rocked the area ahead of Raila’s foray into the area for antigovernment demonstrations.

Mariga has categorically denied these accusations, taking to social media to distance himself from the reports. He posted a video of himself walking in his farm in rural Kenya and said, “A lie can run round the world before the truth has got its boots on… Blessed day everyone #GodAboveEverything.”

Mariga, who is a close ally of President William Ruto, has contested the Kibra Parliamentary seat twice without success and is now retired. Mariga’s denial of involvement in the Kibra chaos comes as Azimio la Umoja continues to hold demonstrations against the high cost of living and President Ruto’s presidency.

The opposition has been demanding that President Ruto stop the process of replacing Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) Commissioners.

Some of the outgoing IEBC Commissioners opposed President Ruto’s victory, saying the tallying process and transmission of results had been shrouded in mystery and mischief. Azimio la Umoja has been calling for the IEBC to open their computer servers to show who won the election.
