Celebrities who’ve expressed interest in running for the 2022 elections

The political waters are boiling over at the moment as Kenyans position themselves to run for political office in 2022. The elections herald an ending of Uhuru Kenyatta’s rule since he was sworn in in 2013.

And the 2022 general election looks like one that will define the hopes of many as it comes at a crossroads where ideals will intersect with pragmatism.

What is interesting however about the upcoming election is the interest that has been expressed by many entertainers/celebs who want to vie.

Why? Maybe Starehe Mp, Charles Njagua’s success during the 2017 election has paved a path and blueprint for many celebs who might have had political ambitions they had kept hidden.

Out of the woodwork they have emerged, expressing their desire to become political representatives and it seems that each and every day more are stating their intent to run.

So for you who have been begging for such a list, your desires have been answered, I am here at your service. Let’s begin:

Jalang’o

The Kiss FM presenter revealed that his recent job would be his last on radio. Speaking in an interview with Billy Miya, the comic disclosed that he now wants to own his own media company, having already started Jalang’o TV on YouTube.

This is my final journey on radio because I have started my own things. I plan to have my media and I started Jalang’o TV on YouTube,” he said.

Jalang’o also declared that he was the incoming Lang’ata MP and insisted politics would be his next move after Kiss 100.

”You are looking at Lang’ata MP, I am not incoming, When they mention MPs names, know that you will hear Jalang’o Jalang’o,” he affirmed.

Alex Mwakideu

The Milele Fm presenter told a local publication that he would want to vie for the Wundayi seat as an MP in 2022.

“Let me correct you, I’m not running for the MP seat, I am becoming Wundayi MP in 2022,” he stated with affirmation.

“I want to give back to the Society, going back at home, nothing much has been done,” he stated.

Lillian Muli

While she might not have come out to confirm her interest in running for political office, the Citizen TV presenter has hinted that she is partial to the idea.

This past month, many of her fans and followers urged her to run for political office, something Lillian didn’t shut down the idea, instead praying that God might hear that prayer.

Prezzo

The Kenyan king of bling came out last year to express his interest to run for office after the Kibra constituency seat became vacant after Ken Okoth passed away after a long battle with cancer.

There were early indications that Prezzo who real names are Jackson Makini wanted to run for the seat under a Wiper Party seat but later on said that he wasn’t.

“Yes, I will be on the ballot. If God grants me life and good health, I don’t see why not. My goal is to bring the change that people always promise to bring but once they get there they don’t bring it.”

Old friend Alex Mwakideu challenges Jalang’o to quit alcohol

Jalang’o has had a year that will most likely be a highlight reel in his memoir (if he does write them that is). The year has seen him have some very significant lows and some very remarkable highs.

The comedin is now having a transcendent moment as the month of July has seen him not only start a new job but also seen him dominate the entertainment headlines.

The multi-talented entertainer recently spoke to his friend Alex Mwakideu while on his online show. The two had a wonderful tête-à-tête with the conversation flowing freely.

The two spoke about their futures and the plans they had with both agreeing that 2022 was the year they would be leaving radio and joining politics.

”Yes I will be Wundanyi MP come 2022, that is a must. Taita people have requested me, who am I to deny. I was in Voi recently and people have even opened social media groups to drum support ahead of 2022,” he added.

What was interesting about their conversation was that Mwakideu’s challenge to his former colleague. He asked Jalang’o to quit drinking alcohol as he had done himself.

Jalang’o acceded to the request saying that he had ditched alcohol already and that was his gift to Mwakideu for always having his back.
