Jalang’o was declared the winner of the Lang’ata Parliamentary seat after garnering 38,948 votes, beating the incumbent MP Nixon Korir, who polled 36,836 votes.
The former Kiss100 radio host has said that his new job has forced him to stop engaging in his usual entrepreneur activities, which includes hosting club events. He will no longer have time for them.
Jalang’o who recently gave his YouTube channel to his employees did not rule out working on radio noting that with a morning show that ends at 9 am he would be able to deliver his parliamentary duties.
See how he answered the rest of the questions below-
Let me answer a few questions that you’ve been asking!
- Now that you are an MP will you still be doing radio? For now, Langata is my No. 1 priority! Delivery of our manifesto and the promises we made to the electorate. Radio is my love and if I get a morning show that ends by 9 so that I can make it for bunge on time then why not? I know many MPs who still do their jobs and deliver for their constituency.
- Will you still be hosting club events and club appearances? NO! My new job comes with a lot of responsibilities and time for clubs might not be there anymore.
- Will you still be doing advertisement? Hell yeah!!
- A lot of them! We will actually be now working with the young people of Langata in concept development and filming! I want to train as many young people as possible in our resource centers.
- For me to be a brand ambassador of your product you must commit to take up and support a community project in Langata!
- Jalango Tv is now in the hands of my team but once or twice I’ll be doing high profile and political interviews. I will also use it to showcase the different projects we are doing in Langata.
- We have already started talking to our different partners on how we can work together in different projects like Mwananchi credit where am the brand ambassador is already committing to sink 20 boreholes in Langata.
- There is more value when you lift a community than an individual, I want to use my talent and connections to help uplift Langata!
