National Assembly Speaker Justin Muturi on Wednesday declared the Kibra constituency seat vacant.

The key announcement sets the ball rolling on the by-election to find a replacement for the Late Ken Okoth.

"In pursuance of the provisions of section 16 (3) of the Elections Act, 2011, I command you that, due notice being given, you do cause election to be held according to law of a member of service in the National Assembly for the said constituency," the notice from Muturi read in part.

Among these are former nominated senator Elizabeth Ongoro, Secretary-General Edwin Sifuna, former presidential campaign manager Eliud Owalo and ODM youth leader Benson Musungu.

The late MP's brother, Imran Okoth, is also said to be in the running for the seat.
