Singer Bahati (Kelvin Kioko) has been removed from Mathare Mp bid after Azimio La Umoja Coalition settled on Anthony Aluoch to fly their flag.
ODM secretary general Edwin Sifuna during a meeting between ODM and Jubilee said Bahati will step aside from the race since Anthony Aluoch is their preferred candidate.
“Zoning was done perfectly even here in Mathare we have agreed that its an ODM zone. We only have one candidate in Mathare and that is Anthony Oluoch, this young man called Bahati is my younger brother and we will talk. I will make sure that we find him another position within the Azimio government.” said Sifuna – the ODM Sec general
Rachael Shebesh also asked Bahati to work with the larger government asking him to emulate Tim Wanyonyi who stepped down for Polycarp Igathe.
Bahati has since refuted the claims, he is set to address the press soon.
