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:


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.

On that @devine_collections vibe!

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 have been thinking…

A post shared by ALEX MWAKIDEU (@alex_mwakideu) on

“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.


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.”

Hamisa addresses rumours Jaguar is the baby daddy of her son Daylan

Hamisa Mobetto is a model whose fame exploded after she hooked up with Diamond Platnumz on the set of his music video, Salome.

No witchcraft here! Tanasha and Hamisa’s sweet banter mocking Zari

The touch and go affair result in Miss Mobetto getting pregnant with her second child, a boy named Daylan. Since then one can’t say Hamisa’s name has been associated so frequently with her second baby daddy.

But as with many of Diamond’s baby mamas, some have claimed that Daylan might not be the Tanzanian singer’s son with some pointing at our very own parliamentarian Jaguar as the baby daddy, especially as the two have a close resemblance.

And the rumours have swirled since 2017 and were re-ignited this month after Jaguar commented on a photo Hamisa had posted of the boy, which he quickly deleted.

That raised eyebrows and made many wonder whether there could be any truth to the rumour. In a recent interview, Mobetto rubbished the reports stating that she doesn’t know Jaguar in person and they have never met.

“Sijawahi kumuona Jaguar katika maisha yangu, sijawahi kuonana naye, sijawahi kuwa na number yake ya simu ila sijawahi kuongea naye. Kwa hiyo sababu za kumpost mtoto wangu anazijua yeye mwenyewe lakini kwa sababu watu wengi Instagram wamekuwa wakumuunganisha na mtoto wangu picha, maybe that is one of the reasons. Lakini sijapata nafasi ya kuongea naye maana simjui, so hopefully the day ambayo nitamuona nitamuuliza” explained Hamisa.

In a separate interview, Hamisa explained that the rumours piss her off because people who always make them, were not there when the child was being fathered.

“When they say Dylan belongs to Jaguar I get annoyed because I know who the father is. Because I was the one who had sex so I know who the father is and I am not the kind to cheat in a relationship. I will be faithful until we break up. But I cannot mix when I’m with you, that’s my nature. A lot of girls can but I can’t,” Hamisa revealed.

Jaguar’s touching message to Hamisa’s son raises eyebrows

Out of all of Diamond Platnumz’s baby mamas, Hamisa Mobetto gets the least respect. Maybe it’s because of the way Diamond and his mother have treated her over the years.

But despite the shameful treatment she has received, the mother of two still has admirers who see a lot in the resilient woman.

And some of those are high and mighty celebs like Ali Kiba who even used her as a video vixen on his song early this year.

And it seems that our very own politician Jaguar has a soft spot for her as evidenced from his recent comment wishing her son a happy birthday.

His comment was deleted shortly afterward.

Those with great memories will remember that when Daylan was born, some noted that he bore a striking resemblance to the Starehe MP and not his own father Diamond! An interesting thing is some believe that Daylan and Jaguar’s eldest son also look alike.

But over time the boy has become a lighter version of his father. Jaguar’s message got the intended response as fans went on to claim that the politicians and the singer had an interest in the same woman.

This isn’t the first time that people have claimed that one of Diamond’s baby’s didn’t look like him. People have claimed that Prince Nillan(the son he got with Zari) has a close resemblance to her former late husband Ivan Ssemwanga.

Has Jaguar bought a plane to seat in his yard? Kenyans think so

Starehe MP Charles Kanyi aka Jaguar is a very popular man on social media today. The politician has left netizens surprised and impressed after he posted an image of a plane on his yard on his social media page.

In the picture, the relic of a plane is positioned behind Jaguar as he sits reading a newspaper. Recently, the KAA had put many planes that were being auctioned at throw-away prices, some for as low as Ksh.1200,000. The plane in what Kenyans presume to be his home is a 5H-SKT which was among the cheapest in the list released by KAA early this month.

Jaguar might have paid a clean Ksh 120,000 for the 5H-SK with Kenyans presuming that the plane is now a decoration his fancy house. The reaction by many of his followers was a mixture of surprise and awe as it is presumed that the musician might have bought the dusty decrepit plane just to seat.

If Jaguar has indeed bought the ‘bonoko’ plane then he is a doer and not a talker. Last year, Ringtone had gone on a sightseeing mission to look for planes and helicopters to buy at Wilson Airport.

As of today we still haven’t seen his airplane despite the controversial musician’s assertions that it wasn’t a publicity stunt. So what gives, Ringtone?

Lulu Diva shows off engagement ring after claiming she is dating Jaguar

Jaguar and Lulu Diva, the Tanzanian socialite and singer, has been on the lips of some East Africans over their ‘alleged’ relationship.

But what has confused many is that Lulu it seems to have gotten engaged to her lover whom she hasn’t yet shown.

The latest development first became public thanks to the songstress’s own Instagram stories. In the story, Lulu shared a photo of her hand flaunting her huge engagement ring in a move that left countless people with unanswered questions. Lulu showed off her jewelry while in Dubai where she was on vacation.

Many are wondering if it was the Starehe MP who had gone down on one knee to propose to her or someone else? This is because Lulu had earlier on publicly declared she is in a romantic relationship with Jaguar.

Speaking in a candid phone interview with Global Publishers earlier this month, the singer said she has been dating the MP for some time now and looks forward to their wedding in the near future.

According to the lady, she decided to date Jaguar, a foreigner, because her fellow countrymen have always disappointed her when it comes to love. She said that they had been dating for 4 months and that their relationship was here to stay.

Lulu revealed to her interviewer that she was in Dubai with Jaguar spending time together and had planned to travel together to Nairobi.

Lulu has previously been linked to dating Tanzanian singer Richard Martin alias Rich Mavoko, rumours she denied in Bahati’s reality show, Being Bahati.

Jaguar himself hasn’t responded to the claims. I think this is a poor attempt at getting publicity for both Jaguar and Lulu. How does the politician gain? By cleaning his name with Kenyans and Tanzanians after his incendiary remarks last month about Tanzanians. For Lulu, anything that keeps her in the news is good for her.

Pictures of a tired looking Charles ‘Jaguar’ Njagua in court

Starehe MP Charles ‘Jaguar’ Njagua appeared in court today over incitement remarks on Wednesday. He was flanked in court by Embakasi East MP Babu Owino and musician Ringtone.

Ringtone’s new song ‘Natafuta Bibi’ savaged by Kenyans

He was arrested by DCI officers around lunchtime Wednesday, shortly after leaving Parliament premises and taken to Nairobi police station where he was interrogated for the rest of the day.

The lawmaker was caught while crossing Harambee Avenue to his Continental House office in the company of Butere counterpart Tindi Mwale when police pounced.

Earlier, elite officers from the DCI had camped in unmarked navy blue and green Subaru Outback cars outside Parliament.

They charged at the lawmaker in a dramatic arrest with at least eight plain cloth officers affecting the arrest.

Jaguar pleaded not to be handcuffed which the officers agreed to and was fast whisked into a waiting South Sudan-registered Subaru that quickly drove off.

The government has distanced itself from remarks Jaguar allegedly made against foreigners doing business in the country.

The state in a statement on Wednesday said Jaguar’s “unfortunate exploitation of the freedom of speech to dehumanise foreign communities and incite local constituents undermines the welcoming culture that Kenya is reputed for and has to be condemned.”

Jaguar was captured in a video telling foreigners engaging in business within Nairobi central business district to shut down and vacate the country failure to which they will be forcefully removed. The Nairobi CBD fall within Jaguar’s Starehe constituency.

The MP, flanked by his supporters, had threatened to invade the premises of foreigners, rough them up and take them to the airport where Immigration officials would deport them. Some of the photos taken by Ezekeil Aminga are below;

‘I will not tolerate jokers,’ Mheshimiwa Jaguar revives beef with Babu Owino

Remember when Starehe MP Jaguar and Embakasi East MP Babu Owino almost came to blows?

Well, that standoff is about to be revived again in the second session of the 12th Parliament.

Speaking to the Star yesterday, Jaguar accused Babu of hurling insults at President Uhuru Kenyatta and Interior CS Fred Matiang’i and hiding in Parliament to escape arrest.

“We are warning some of our leaders who use Parliament as a hiding den after hurling insults to Uhuru and Matiang’i. We are now back to business and will not tolerate jokers,” Jaguar said.

“If they continue insulting Uhuru’s administration, we will be smoking them out of Parliament and handing them over to the police.”

babu-owino-12On Wednesday last week, Babu sought intervention from House Speaker Justin Muturi after receiving reports that Flying Squad officers were eagerly waiting for him outside the precincts of Parliament Buildings.

He claimed that police officers in three vehicles wanted to arrest him for remarks he issued during the NASA’s Baba Dogo rally.

“They want to arrest me but I don’t think I will get out. If matters worsen, I will spend the night here,” he said, “This is total witch-hunt. An abuse is not a crime. That’s a civil matter. If Matiang’i feels I abused him let him proceed to a civil court instead of using police to round us up.”

In January, the MP was arrested outside Parliament buildings over assault and malicious damage to property. He was detained for two nights at Parklands police cells and released after Nairobi senator Johnson Sakaja intervened.

On November late last year, Jaguar apologized to his constituents following a fist fight with Babu at Parliament buildings. Sergeants at arms had to separate the two.

Jaguar is said to have asked Babu to stop insulting the presidency before the fight.

He apologised, citing his counterpart’s alleged reference to President Uhuru Kenyatta as mtoto wa mbwa.

The first time lawmaker however promised to “square it out” with Babu if he continues to insult Uhuru and the presidency.

Mheshimiwa Anapenda Vita Sana! Octopizzo And Jaguar Attack Each Other Again Viciously

Octopizzo and Jaguar are back at it like a couple of twitter crazed ninjas. But I wouldn’t put it beyond Jaguar to try and put his hands on Octopizzo like he did to Babu Owino.

You see, the two – Jaguar and Octo – had thrown blows at each other on social media last week and it seems this new beef is not ending anytime soon.

Octo has come out to say he can’t stand “cry baby” Jaguar, which has stirred an exchange of words between the two on social media.

Jaguar responded saying, “Elections did not begin when I got into politics. I was playing my part mentoring our generation even before you realised you had a talent.”

Adding, “You seem to be seeking cheap publicity theatrics on matters of National importance. Play your role as @octopizzo. Leave my name out of it.”

Here is a post with Octopizzo’s savage response.

He even disclosed a while back that he was a makanga (tout), because he had to make ends meet. Furthermore, these days being a tout is a good job, if only you are good to your clients.

Well, Jaguar is now a successful man and he recently won the Starehe Member of Parliament seat in the just concluded general election. He has had his fair share of struggles, but it’s now time for him to lead the people of Starehe.

Celebrated Kenyan musician Jaguar is truly a loyal man. He has always been ready to give back to the community in whichever way he can.


Once again, he has put the needs of others before him and lent a helping hand to yet another Kenyan in need of help. Well, today Jaguar has helped out a disabled from Nairobi.

Jaguar has been involved in many charitable activities for a longtime now and today as he was heading to his office at the NSSF building, he found a handicapped man by the name James Kafwa who was struggling to get up the building.


After seeing the situation in which James was in, the NACADA director decided to ask him if he had someone to help him move around.

James told Jaguar that he had no one to help him since he is just a shoe cobbler in Eastleigh. Jaguar was moved by the story and decided to send his bodyguard to buy a new wheelchair for James which was delivered after an hour.


The delighted James couldn’t hide his joy after discovering from the security men of the building that the guy who had bought the wheelchair for him was Jaguar.

James later on requested the security guys to call Jaguar to come downstairs so that he can thank him personally.
