Singer Willy Paul has reacted to Bahati’s defeat in Mathare parliamentary seat.

The singer-cum-politician (Bahati) was vying on a Jubilee party ticket and emerged third after getting 8,166 votes.

Bahati followed UDA’s Billian Ojiwa who managed 16,912 and incumbent MP Anthony Oluoch of ODM who fought to retain his seat after amassing 28,098 votes.

Taking to Instagram, Willy Paul congratulated MP Anthony Oluoch lauding him for retaining the Mathare seat.

"I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate two of my good friends. First, congratulations to the one Antony Oluoch for Winning the MATHARE MP SEAT. You are what the people of MATHARE need sir.

"You must have really done a good job, sir, retaining that seat is not easy! Keep pushing, MATHARE is my home and I'm glad it's in safe hands again."

Before the official announcement by the returning officer in the constituency, Bahati had alleged that there was a rigging plot.

On his social media pages, Bahati wrote;

"Three days since voting happened, 21 ballot boxes tampered with. I have been waiting to be declared the winner and to be handed over the official certificate as the Mathare MP-elect," he said. 

Adding;

"Dear I.E.B.C. We Need Answers!!! Everything is at Stand Still at The St. Teresa's Tallying Centre and We can Sense Rigging Plans... TELL US WHAT'S HAPPENING!!!"

Bahati is yet to concede defeat.
