Controversial content creator Andrew Kibe has teased incumbent Lang’ata Member of Parliament (MP) Phelix Odiwuor about challenging him should there be a by-election.
Kibe shared a throwback photo during his 2013 Lang’ata campaigns. “One of us for us,” read the slogan.
Andrew Kibe defeated in 2013 election
He was however defeated by the immediate former MP Nixon Korir who is now the Principal Secretary in the State Department of Lands and Physical Planning.
The controversial YouTuber told Jalang’o to prepare for a challenge.
“Photoshop kiasi and this poster is good to go. Jalang’o tukutane kwa debe,” he added.
The embattled lawmaker responded saying, “Hehehe! Come baby come!”
Andrew Kibe ‘unhappy’ with Jalang’o’s win
In August 2022, Kibe was confident that Jalang’o would be defeated by Korir, saying the media personality had made a wrong move to jump into the political scene too soon.
Jalang’o had replaced Kibe as the co-host in Kiss 100 breakfast morning show a few months before he declared his interest in politics.
Jalang’o vows to appeal ODM’s decision
Speaking in a phone interview on Radio 47’s morning show Breakfast 47, Jalang’o vowed to appeal ODM decision to expel him alongside four others.
In a statement by ODM on Wednesday, the five were reportedly found guilty of defying party position and gross misconduct.
He wondered why other Azimio leaders such as Kalonzo Musyoka visited State House but faced no disciplinary action.
“Even ODM knows there’s no case there. Yesterday Kalonzo spent time in State House. MPs like Manduku are Ruto’s friends. MPs like Kanchory have also visited the President.
“Then why were some of us expelled yet others were just given fines? What mistake did we commit more than all the others? Therefore the case will be too weak for them,” Jalang’o wondered.
Ready to go back to the people
He maintained that he would lead the people of Lang’ata until 2027 and was not afraid to go back to the electorate for fresh mandate.
“Niko tayari kuingia popote iwe independent, ODM ama yoyote ile,” he added.
