Popular radio presenter and reggae emcee Mary Njambi Koikai, also known as Jahmby Fyah Mummah, has announced plans to vie for the Dagoretti South parliamentary seat.

The veteran reggae emcee laid down the issues she is going to address if elected Member of Parliament (MP) at the August 9, 2022 polls.

Some of the issues outlined in her manifesto include; youth employment, water accessibility, healthcare improvement as well as matters affecting the elderly and people living with disabilities.

“The spirit of community and purpose can be felt in our drive, the friendships we've created since childhood which have been passed on from generation to generation. Living in this community has shaped my values and the direction of my life. This has encouraged me to work for my community to improve the social and economic status of our people by working together,” Njambi stated in a detailed post.

Being an endometriosis survivor, Njambi pledged a pillar of health dubbed Uboreshaji wa afya (improved healthcare) upon election.

“I battled Endometriosis and Adenomyosis which are menstrual health related diseases for over 15 years and through this experience, I identified gaps in our healthcare system that motivated me to advocate for better access to healthcare for our communities in Dagoretti South,” Njambi’s post read.

Njambi who will be seeking to succeed MP Simba Arati said the voices of the elderly and people living with disabilities will also be heard under her leadership.

“These include the many elderly people, the people with living with disabilities and those living with mental health challenges and developmental conditions. We tend to silence these vulnerable people and their families. We need to listen to their needs. Like anyone else, they want opportunities and support to care for themselves. We also need to make it easier for their families and communities to care for them,” Njambi said.

Another radio presenter who has announced political ambitions include Julius Owino, also known as Maji Maji, of Ghetto radio will be hoping to get the Seme parliamentary seat.

Other entertainers seeking elective positions in the August 9 polls include, Kiss 100 presenter Jalang’o, musician and medic Frasha, rapper Prezzo, P-unit's Gabu, Kelvin Daniel (Kijana Pat Pat), former radio and TV host DNG, Samidoh's baby mama Karen Nyamu, Kikuyu gospel artiste Loise Kim and vlogger Xtian Ndela.
