Boniface Mwangi to raise campaign funds in concert

Aspiring Starehe MP Boniface Mwangi will be seeking to raise campaign funds this Saturday in a concert that will feature performances from top artistes.

The activist told Nairobi News that he was in need of Sh3 million for the last leg of his campaigns as well as to facilitate acquisition of agents on Election Day.

The concert comes days after he appealed to the public after running out of campaign funds.

After the appeal, a jibe by lawyer Ahmednassir Abdullahi advising Mwangi to write proposal to donors, led to an online protest that raised Sh630,000 for his campaigns.
