Boniface Mwangi concedes after trouncing by Jaguar

Civil rights activist turned politician Boniface Mwangi has conceded defeat and wished the newly elected Member of Parliament of Starehe Charles “Jaguar” Kanyi well.

Mwangi, who was vying on an Ukweli Party ticket, thanked everyone who supported him in this race.

“My campaign team, who worked day and night to ensure we got this far. The thousands of Kenyans who funded my campaign, thank you,” Mr Mwangi posted on his Facebook page.

He was optimistic of a better outcome in the 2022 general election.

“This gives me hope in our people and our country. It gives me hope that in 2022, matters of tribe and political party allegiance will no longer be a big deal, as long as you run on issues.”

He added: “The people of Starehe have spoken and l respect their decision. To the Starehe MP-elect, l wish you all the best. God bless you and God bless Kenya.”
