Kenyan musician Jaguar follows in Bobi Wine’s footsteps, wins elections

It looks like it’s fast becoming a norm for musicians to actively participate in politics. First, it was Professor J who first became a Member of Parliament in Tanzania. He was then followed by Bobi Wine who is barely two months in his role as the Kyaddondo East Member of Parliament. And yesterday, Kenyan musician Jaguar was also announced the winner of the Starehe Constituency.


This came after Jubilee Party invalidated the nomination of Maina Kamanda as the Starehe Constituency winner of the Jubilee nomination held last week and handed the nomination to Charles Njagua Kanyi alias Jaguar.
The Jubilee Party Appeals Tribunal ruled in favour of musician-turned politician Njagua, who had filed a petition claiming he won the nomination.
It seems the decision made by the party was the right one as the “Kigeugeu” musician took a landslide victory in the just-concluded elections, beating his rivals Boniface Mwangi of Ukweli party and Steve Mbogo of ODM.
With the three musicians in politics, they have paved way for others to also follow.
