Mathare MP candidate Kevin Bahati votes in Mathare

Accompanied by his wife Diana Marua Bahati cast his vote a few minutes before 2:00 PM at Ngei PAG primary school, Mathare Constituency.

The singer has been through hell in his pursuit to acquire an ODM ticket for the Mathare Parliamentary set after he was forced to step down from the race and drop his ambition in favor of Anthony Oluoch who is running on an Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) an idea Bahati didn’t buy.

The Azimio One Kenya presidential candidate Raila Odinga had also urged the singer to drop his political bid but the singer didn't back down claiming he want to serve his people.
