Incumbent Lang’ata Constituency Member of National Assembly, Nixon Korir, has conceded defeat to his opponent ODM aspirant Felix Odiwuor alias Jalang'o.

In a statement on his Facebook account, Korir thanked Lang'ata's residents for the support they accorded him for the five years tenure he served them.

"To the people of Langata, I sincerely thank you for according me an opportunity to be your Member of Parliament for the last 5 years.

It's been a great opportunity that gave me an avenue to contribute to our nation-building and service to the people," he wrote.

Korir congratulated his opponent Jalang'o whom he said was leading in most of the already tallied results.

"From the results that we've tallied at the Generali centre, my competitor Jalango has a lead and I want to congratulate him as he prepares to take the mantle and move Langata forward.  Siasa si chuki. God bless Langata."

Speaking after casting his vote yesterday at the Lang’ata Road Primary School, Korir expressed confidence in the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) delivering a credible election.

“According to the voters’ turnout and the campaign, definitely we are winning. But I can see the town is a little bit slower, maybe because it was a little bit cold in the morning. I can see it is now picking and we hope that it will continue that way. I am yet to look at the actual numbers in terms of the voter turnout,” he stated.

He further urged Kenyans to exercise their democratic right of choosing a leader of their choice.

“It is important to come out and vote because you have an option of either coming out and choosing the leaders that you want or sitting down and complaining for the next 5 years,” he said.
