Popular musician-cum- politician Kevin Kioko alias Bahati could not keep calm after Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC) gazetted him to compete for the Mathare MP seat under the Jubilee ticket.
With the Gazette notice, this means Bahati is duly nominated to run for the Mathare seat and his name will appear on the ballot paper on 9th Aug 2022.
This is after After weeks of back and forth fight with ODM secretary-general Edwin Sifuna, who wanted ”mtoto wa mathare” to step down in favor of incumbent Antony Oluoch
Bahati could however not take in the good news without rubbing it on the face of his political detractor, going as far as the electorate not to vote for Sifuna who is seeking to become Nairobi’s next governor.
“I want to inform you that I am gazetted and I’m vying. Thank you to the people of Mathare who rioted to have me on the ballot paper. No one can change that,” Bahati said.
“Vote for me and Raila Odinga but when it comes to the senator seat don’t vote for Sifuna. That man rants a lot,” he added.
