Mathare MP aspirant Kevin Kioko has announced that he wants his fans to help in contributing for his campaigns.
Bahati who is eyeing Mathare MP, took to his Instagram page to ask his fans to support him. He shared a paybill number in which fans can contribute money to.
Bahati who was partly raised in Mathare said his journey in politics is to inspire the youths that something good can come from the slums
Here is what he wrote;
“I Made a Tough Decision to go for this Elective Seat not Only to Win and Bring the Much Change Needed Change in the Slums of Mathare but to also Give Hope and Show that Something Good Can Come out of a Ghetto 🙏 I AM HERE TO INSPIRE.”
Bahati further added that he had officially started his campaigns thanking his fans for believing in him.
READY TO OFFICIALLY START THE CAMPAIGNS AND TO ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE BEEN ASKING HOW YOU CAN SUPPORT THIS GREAT DREAM…. USE TILL NUMBER 5753787 …. THANK YOU ALL FOR BELIEVING IN BAHATI & THE YOUTH OF THIS COUNTRY; GOD BLESS YOU.”
However,the post elicited a mixed reaction from his fans with many congratulating his move.
Some though, accused the former gospel singer for using the opportunity to milk money from his fans.
Here are a few comments from his fans;
Champez_85: Ambia wasanii wenzako wakuchangia ili ukipita uwatetee huko parliament.
winniefredey333: Ety till number again. Wabula the rich are to be more richer and poor, poorer.
kirangari_boys: Vile inafaa bro bora vijana watoke chini ….mhesh mwenyewe bah.
lavidafie: Nani aliitisha till number? Kama hauko ready endelea na music uko talented sana. (Who asked for the Till? if you are not ready please continue doing music.)
jemonduati: Bahati should perfect one thing he is all over the place. One time gospel artist, next time secular artist, now politician 🤦♂️ I mean who wants a leader tht has no principles and sense of direction 🤔 He will be elected and do the same thing he has been doing to the Mathare folks. I feel like Bahati is conforming and confused because of peer pressure..just stating my observation..
