Why Jaguar wept at Jubilee headquarters – VIDEO

The indecision of Jubilee Party’s Appeals Tribunal is what moved popular musician, Charles Njagua Kanyi aka Jaguar to tears at the party headquarters on Saturday.

The Kigeugeu hitmaker has lodged an appeal with the tribunal over the outcome of the Starehe Constituency parliamentary seat nominations which he lost to area MP Maina Kamanda.

According to the results that were announced on Thursday, Jaguar polled 8,391 votes to Kamanda’s 10,374 votes but he maintains that the outcome was altered in favour of the incumbent.

And after it emerged that the tribunal had recommended that the two aspirants sit down and find a consensus over the dispute, Jaguar was clearly a broken man.


Surrounded by his supporters at Jubilee Party headquarters, Jaguar couldn’t find the words to express his pain and disappointment. He could only bow his face as he wept openly.

While Kamanda seems open to the idea of a consensus, Jaguar is adamant that he has to be the one to carry the ticket.

“He is like my son, I have no problem with him. If he says daddy lets sit down and talk, I will not tell him no,” Kamanda said.

“Like he is saying, I’m his son, and if that is the case, then instead of waiting for 2022 to relinquish the seat, he should just leave the seat to me now,” Jaguar said.

The Jubilee Party disputes tribunal was due to address Jaguar’s appeal on Sunday.
