“This is a big win for the youth of Kenya and Mathare constituency,” Diana B.

Youtuber turned rapper Diana B, real name Diana Marua, has offered a congratulatory message to her husband Kevin Bahati after he was handed the Jubilee Party ticket to vie for the Mathare parliamentary seat.

In an Instagram post the rapper wrote, “The devil might delay the process but he cannot deny what has been written and stamped in Heaven. Victory belongs to Jesus, He has neveeerrr failed us! This is a big win for the youth of Kenya and Mathare Constituency!”

Kenyan musician Bahati finally gets to vie for the Mathare Parliamentary seat in the August 9th elections. Bahati was handed the ticket on Friday by Jubilee Secretary-General Jeremiah Kioni at the party headquarters.

The move comes a month after the musician protested against the Azimio One Kenya zoning deal. The singer was given the ticket at a ceremony held at Jubilee Party headquarters in Pangani, Nairobi.

“We are happy to have Bahati as he is a young person. He represents everything positive in this country,”Kioni said.

At the ceremony, Bahati was confident and happy to be on the ballot. “I want to confirm that I now have the ticket and that I will be on the ballot on a Jubilee party ticket,” stated Bahati.

He also committed to campaigning for the Azimio presidential candidate Raila Odinga, especially among the youth.
