Mr Mariga, who was accompanied by gospel artiste Rufftone, first attended a service at Lindi Central PAG Church and later went to New World Revival Ministry Church. Jubilee nominated MP Maina Kamanda led ODM’s Imran Okoth’s campaign by hosting a delegation of members from the Gikuyu community for a meeting with the candidate. Also present was Dagoretti North MP Simba Arati. Mariga said it was the first time he was attending a church service in the constituency since he declared his candidature for the seat. One of the strategies the Jubilee candidate employed was door-to-door engagement with residents and voters. He said he aimed to visit all corners of the constituency to get to know the residents' problems as well as to persuade them to vote for him.

Owalo said job creation and education would top his agenda to ensure youths become independent. “For those who fail to get jobs, we will enroll them in TVET institutions to learn carpentry and electrical training, and tailoring and hairdressing for the ladies." He promised to build sports and talent development centres for those who want to explore and nurture their talents. He also vowed to deal with land grabbing in Toi and the hawkers' market. "We will also get buses for people who have funerals and need to transport the bodies home."
