Singer turned politician Kevin Kioko Bahati, better known as just Bahati, has been roughed up and chased away from a political rally in Mathare, before even talking to his fans.
Bahati, who is contending for the member of Parliament of Mathare constituency, had attended the Azimio La Umoja coalition rally that was graced by top Nairobi leaders in the constituency.
In a video that has circulated online, Bahati is seen as he is roughed up and chased away from the rally without even getting a chance to give a speech to his supporters.
ODM party chairman Edwin Sifuna and former Nairobi County women representative Rachel Shebesh had earlier told Bahati to step down from the race, after zoning that Azimio La Umoja coalition did. Bahati was advised to support the incumbent member of Parliament but the singer has remained adamant terming the claims as propaganda and that Jubilee party which gave him the ticket is not aware of the agreement.
