Five days after he dropped out of the South Imenti parliamentary seat, Jasper Muthomi aka MC Jessy now says that he will contest for the national assembly seat in the August 9 polls as an independent candidate.
On April 13, Deputy President William Ruto announced Mc Jessy who was contesting for the first time had dropped his bid in favour of Mwiti Kathaara following discussions with United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party leader.
However, the move by MC Jessy now means that he will be battling out other candidates who are eying the same seat including UDA’s Kathara.
“Sent like an arrow from a mighty man’s hand. We keep going….. Bado Tuko kwa race. Let’s do this South Imenti, 9th August it is,” Mc Jessy said in a statement Monday.
Last week, Ruto said in a statement that the Churchill Show comedian will be part of his presidential campaign team ahead of the August 9, elections.
“MC Jessy (Jasper Muthomi) will join the presidential campaign team after postponing his parliamentary bid in favor of Mwiti Kathaara for the South Imenti Seat,” Ruto said in a statement.
