Musician turned politician Bahati who's contesting for Mathare Constituency parliamentary race faced an embarrassing moment on Monday after he was denied a chance to speak in the Azimio la Umoja rally.

In a livestream aired through Azimio la Umoja verified Facebook page,Bahati was seen struggling to be given mic before ODM Secretary General Edwin Sifuna signaled bodyguards to ask Bahati leave the rally.

Bahati was escorted out of the rally as his supporters caused a dramatic scene before the situation calmed after Mathare Mp candidates left.

A week ago,Bahati traded harsh words on social media following Sifuna’s announcement that Bahati had stepped down in favor of the ODM candidate in Mathare constituency, Anthony Oluoch.

This happened after Sifuna shared a short clip of the Jubilee party leadership confirming that Bahati was no longer in the Mathare race.

Reports had indicated that Azimio la Umoja will drop a weak candidate ahead of August polls urging candidates to support strong Contenders in efforts to outwit Dp Ruto's Kenya Kwanza.
