Award winning musician Kelvin Kioko, known to most as Bahati, has refuted the claims that he’s stepping down from the Mathare MP race after it was alleged that the singer was termed young, incompetent and a cry baby.
Bahati has clapped back at the Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) Secretary General Edwin Sifuna and Rachel Shebesh after alleging that he had had stepped down in favour of MP Anthony Oluoch.
He hurled unprintable insults at both of them on his social media with a detailed statement;
”#MY_STATEMENT And so because it seems this Sifuna and Shebesh have been paid by my Loosing opponent to Spread Propaganda let me answer them here. First and Foremost You Two Don’t Speak on Behalf of My Party Jubilee. ( I WANT TO CONFIRM THAT I BAHATI KIOKO I AM STILL ON THE BALLOT AS THE NEXT MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT MATHARE CONSTITUENCY UNDER THE JUBILEE/AZIMIO TICKET)… I would like the Public and the People of Mathare to Know that the polls were done and they All Know that Bahati is leading both on Polls and on Ground.
