Renowned Classic FM presenter Maina Kageni has shocked many online after revealing that he will be contesting for the Nairobi County Women Representative seat. The radio king on Wednesday announced the move just a few hours after making a post asking his fans to watch out for a major announcement to be made on his Facebook page.
The presenter announced he has already been cleared to contest by the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), and will be on the ballot in the August 8 polls. He further stated that he will be contesting as an independent candidate after his clearance by the registrar of political parties.
Interestingly, the Maina and King’ang’i in the Morning show host chose a wig as his symbol during the contest.
He posted his clearance papers from IEBC and registrar of parties allowing him to run for office that was created for women.
