Radio host Jahmby Koikai will compete for the Dagoretti South MP seat as an independent candidate


Through her Instagram, the veteran reggae host laid out the issues she will address if elected as the next Dagoretti MP.

Some of the issues outlined in his manifesto include; youth employment, accessibility to water, improved health care as well as issues affecting the elderly and people with disabilities.

“The spirit of community and purpose is felt in our drive, the friendships we have created since childhood and passed down from generation to generation. Living in this community has shaped my values ​​and the direction of my life. This encouraged me to work for my community to improve the social and economic status of our people by working together. Njambi said in his lengthy post.

As an endometriosis survivor, Njambi promised a pillar of health dubbed Uboreshaji waafya (improved health care) in the election.

“I have struggled with endometriosis and adenomyosis which are diseases related to menstrual health for over 15 years and through this experience I have identified gaps in our healthcare system which have motivated me to advocate for better access to health care for our communities in Dagoretti South.” Njambi’s message read.

Njambi, who will seek to succeed MP Simba Arati, said the voices of older people and people with disabilities will also be heard under his leadership.

“These include the many older people, people living with disabilities and those living with mental health issues and developmental disabilities. We tend to silence these vulnerable people and their families. We have to listen to their needs. Like everyone else, they want opportunities and support to take care of themselves. We also need to make it easier for their families and communities to care for them. said Njambi.

Among other radio presenters who have announced political ambitions, Julius Owino, also known as Maji Maji of Ghetto Radio, is hoping to secure Seme’s parliamentary seat.

Other artists seeking elective positions in the August 9 polls include, Kiss 100 presenter Jalang’o, musician and doctor Frasha, rapper Prezzo, Gabu from Unit P, Kelvin Daniel (Kijana Pat Pat), former DNG radio and TV host, Samidoh’s baby mama Karen Nyamu, gospel artist Kikuyu Loise Kim and vlogger Xtian Ndela.
