Musician and Starehe legislator Charles Njagua Kanyi, popularly known as Jaguar, has fired salvos at activist Boniface Mwangi.
Speaking on Citizen TV’s 10 over 10 Show with Willis Raburu on Friday, the Kigeugeu hitmaker’s comments seemingly implied that Mwangi lost the Starehe parliamentary seat to him because he (Mwangi) campaigned on Twitter.
When asked about how he successfully clinched an elective seat despite the failure of other artists and creatives to do so, Jaguar said, “There’s a difference in vying just because you’re an artist…or just because you’re a comedian…or just because you’re an activist like Boniface Mwangi and campaigning on Twitter…”
“There are those who vie because they actually know the problems faced by the ordinary citizen,” he added.
The singing MP, as he declared himself on the show, further narrated how it was through such acts like building bridges in areas like Mukuru Kayaba that endeared him to the residents and they decided to push him to run for office.
“They (Starehe constituency residents) pushed me to run because of all the things I had done for them,” he said.
