The Wasafi family has bagged double blessings after two of its top members clinched parliamentary seats in the just concluded Tanzania elections.
Diamond Platnumz’ long-time manager, Babu Tale who lost his wife Shamsa Kombo Tale on the morning of June 28, 2020, might finally have something to be proud of, of the dark year.
Babu Tale has been declared the new Morogoro South East constituency legislator after going unopposed.
Meanwhile, popular Wasafi records’ rapper, Hamis Mwinjuma aka Mwana Fa has been declared the new Muheza constituency legislator.
The two Bongo celebrities vied for their parliamentary seats on the ruling CCM party tickets.
Mwana Fa was among the few lucky CCM members who successfully sought the party’s approval from a pool of 10,367 against 264 parliamentary seats, in August 2020.
The party’s publicity secretary, Humphrey Polepole, explained that they carefully selected political aspirants “who will protect the wider interests of the people, the party and the nation as a whole”.
Babu Tale on the other hand clinched the coveted Morogoro parliamentary seat after flooring Tanzania’s assistant Agricultural minister Omary Mgumbe who was the incumbent.
Barely 3 months ago while declaring his bid for the MP seat, Hamisi Shaban Taletale received massive support from the Wasafi family.
Who expressed strong belief that he could duly deliver both to the political party and the constituents ahead of the October elections.
The two newest celebrity MPs in town, could not contain their excitement following the mega announcements.
