Kibera’s finest rapper Henry Ohanga aka Octopizzo has slammed Mariga’s candidature for the Kibra parliamentary seat claiming that he is unqualified to propel the legacy left by the late Ken Okoth who succumbed to cancer.
According to Octopizzo, Mariga is just a joker using his fame and influence to confuse his fellow Kibra residents and voters.
“Mariga hawezi kulead Kibra anatumia fame na influence yake ku kudanganya watu wa Kibra. Style iko sai bora niko popular natumia hiyo to my advantage juu mimi ni msanii nitaenda kusimama Kibra bila kufanya groundwork. Mbona ikue rahisi ivo. Ata Ken Okoth hakuipata kiurahisi, alienda door to door na hakua na mse wa kumfanyia campaign. Hawa wase wemgine kama Mariga wameona juu wao ni famous wanaenda Kibra wakidhani ni mteremko,” said Octopizzo during a media interview.
Octopizzo joins the likes of other celebrities and leaders such as Boniface Mwangi, Maina Kamanda, Moses Kuria and Beatrice Elachi who have openly dismissed Mariga’s candidature in the Kibra by-elections.
