Don’t call me 'Mheshimiwa' - Jalang’o tells Lang’ata voters

How do you call yourself 'Mheshimiwa' when the people you represent are still hungry, angry, hopeless? - Jalas

Media Personality Jalang'o

Lang’ata parliamentary hopeful Jalang’o, has asked his would-be constituents to refrain from calling him 'Mheshimiwa (Honourable)'.

In an update, the Kiss 100 presenter said that he doesn’t subscribe to the idea of calling elected leaders ‘Mheshimiwa’ yet they are put in office to serve people.

“Life is very beautiful and really strange… I have openly declared my candidature for Lang’ata as the next member of Parliament! Oh My! It has been a roller-coaster and a beautiful journey!

“Everyone now calls me Mheshimiwa and I get surprised and confused! Yes! How do you call yourself Mheshimiwa when the people you represent are still hungry, angry, hopeless and almost giving up in life? How do you sleep in peace knowing you are Mheshimiwa and there is nothing to show for it?” Jalang’o questioned.

He also addressed those alleging that he will change and stop fighting for the common Mwananchi (citizen) once elected.

“They say Jalas is just talking because he is not in yet! Akiingia atasahau (When he gets the seat he'll change)! I hope I don’t! That’s why my slogan is Utu na Watu, humanity and people! So please don’t call me Mheshimiwa until I have done the work to deserve that name!! #Langata1 #UtuNaWatu,” he added.

Last Day

On October 7, Jalang’o said his last day at Kiss 100 will be on February 9, 2022.

“First things first, February 9th will be my last day on the radio so that I can focus on politics, that is a transition we have already arranged,” he said, adding that he would also step back from running his private businesses.

IEBC set February 9 as the deadline for public officers to resign if they intend to vie in the upcoming elections.

The Ethics and Anticorruption Commission said that it would not approve candidates who will have breached this requirement.

In preparation for the elections, Jalas has formally filed a deed poll to change his name from Felix Odiwuor to Jalang’o Jalang’o.
