Popular Churchill show comedian MC Jessy whose real name is Jasper Muthoni is ready to battle for the South Imenti parliamentary seat after receiving the blessing from Ameru elders.
Jessy in a social media post noted that the ceremony was held over the weekend in his home town in Mer County.
"They say 'what the elders can see while seated, young men will only be able to see it if only they stand on their shoulders' I am a student of this theory and I believe that the best classroom in the world is at the feet of an elderly person."
"Over the weekend I was grateful and humbled by the elders that raised me and who are from my Home Constituency of South Imenti when they honoured and bestowed on me the blessings and responsibilities to lead South Imenti Constituency as the Member Of Parliament. Our society must make it right and possible for the elders not to fear the Young or feel deserted by them. The mantle has been passed and each generation must safeguard it and extend it further," he wrote.
The comedian hopes to unseat incumbent Kathuri Murungi who has in the recent past been ranked the best MP in Mt Kenya East and Meru and number seven countrywide.
Jessy joins the train of well-known personalities in the country including radio personality Jalas who are eyeing political seats ahead of the 2022 general elections.
