Bahati has also addressed the ugly incident that left him humiliated
In her message, Marua encouraged her husband and reminded him that he is a force to be reckoned with and that’s why they keep attacking him.
“You are a force that cannot be ignored!!! the way to the top can never be reached without opposition. keep pushing... God got you, Mathare people already know who is best for them,” Diana Marua reacted.
In his words, Bahati explained that his competitors felt intimidated by his presence, opting to chase him away from the campaign trail.
He also alleged that those in charge of the political rally were forced to end the meeting prematurely against the will of the people.
“When Sifuna and his losing friend saw the incoming Mathare MP - Bahati Kioko has arrived and the crowd was demanding to hear me speak... they decided to end the meeting pre- maturely against the will of the people.
"Lakini mungu halali; ata mkini dhulumu watu wa mathare wameamua kura watapea mtoto wa Mathare. Lakini mbona hawa wazee wote wanakasirishwa nahuyu kijana mdogo?,” Bahati questioned.
On Monday, the EMB record label president was humiliated by a section of Azimo La Umoja affiliated politicians, thereby denying him a chance to address the people of Embakasi East during a political rally in the area.
In a clip watched by this writer, ODM party Secretary General, Edwin Sifuna and Nairobi gubernatorial hopeful, Polycarp Igathe could be seen cautioning the speaker not to hand over the microphone to Bahati.
The frustrations forced Mtoto wa Mama to abandon the Azimio campaign trail, with a section of his supporters consoling him.
The unexpected incident comes at a time the singer is embroiled in a war of words with Nairobi Senatorial aspirant Edwin Sifuna.
The two have been trading harsh words on social media following Sifuna’s announcement that Bahati had stepped down in favour of the ODM candidate in Mathare constituency, Anthony Oluoch.
