Popular Kikuyu secular musician Gathee wa Njeri has joined politics and will seek an elective post during August 9 general election.

The youthful artist, whose real name is Lawrence Gathee Mwangi, will vie for MCA in Gaturi Ward, Kiharu, Murang'a county.

Gathee alias Mugithi Master has also thrown his weight behind Deputy President William Ruto's presidential bid and will vie on his United Democratic Alliance (UDA) party ticket.

He is seeking to dethrone the incumbent Esther Mwihaki who was elected in a by-election on December 2020 on People's Empowerment Party formerly led by Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria.

Gathee says if elected his main focus will be on the improvement of roads, education, heath sector, enhance security and electricity connectivity, and promote talent and sports.

The musician went to Kimathi Secondary School, a mixed day school in Gaturi, where he scored grade A in KCSE.

He proceeded to Kenyatta University for a Bachelor's degree in Agribusiness Management and Trade and graduated with a Second Upper class in 2019.

The fast-rising Mugithi artist behind hits such as Wamunyota, Saitani, Wakua ni Wora, Mwari wa Pastor, among others is currently pursuing Masters in Business at Kenyatta University.
