ODM secretary general Edwin Sifuna and artist Kelvin Bahati have increased battle of words over the Mathare Parliamentary seat.
The two have now taken their ‘battle’ to web-based entertainment, where they went at one another with harsh articulations.
Taking to Twitter, Sifuna said thanks to the Jubilee party for consenting to back occupant Anthony Oluoch of ODM for the Mathare parliamentary seat, saying that he would by and by apologize to the artist’s significant other.
“Asante sana Jubilee Party Nairobi for settling the Matahre question for us. We currently have an up-and-comer. Hiyo Kijana ya kulia nitachukua statement of regret yake kwa Diana by and by,” Sifuna said.
An irate Bahati answered, cautioning the ODM secretary general to stop from referencing his significant other’s name while wading into controversy.
He further requested that Sifuna have regard for ladies.
“Mr Sifuna, hold your mouth back from referencing my better half in your modest governmental issues !!! Have some regard for ladies,” Bahati answered.
Everything began on Monday, after Sifuna declared during a joint representatives meeting among ODM and Jubilee individuals that it had been concluded that Orange party’s Anthony Oluoch was the favored competitor in Mathare and Bahati, who is looking for the seat under a Jubilee ticket will move to one side.
Sifuna who is Azimio la Umoja Nairobi Senatorial competitor expressed that, Bahati will, in any case, be offered an elective situation in the Azimio-One Kenya outfit after winning the August surveys.
“Drafting was done totally even here in Mathare we have concurred that its an ODM zone. We just have one up-and-comer in Mathare and that is Anthony Oluoch, this young fellow called Bahati is my more youthful sibling and we will talk. I will ensure that we track down him one more situation inside the Azimio government,” he said.
Last month, Jubilee Party gave Bahati the selection declaration and he was cleared by the Independence Electoral and Boundaries Commission to strive for Mathare MP in the August general political race.
