Singer Bahati casts his vote in Mathare
Singer, and the Jubilee party candidate vying for Mathare MP, Kevin Bahati Kioko has finally casted his vote.
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.
Bahati hopes to be the next Mathare MP after revealing he had gone to depths to fund his campaigns.

“For my campaign, I spent Sh33 million; this is I got from my friends, my fans, and my party Jubilee has been very supportive as well. The budget for the election day is Sh10 million,” Bahati said not revealing precisely what they intended to do with the money during the elections.
