Starehe lawmaker Charles Njagua alias Jaguar claims to have rubbished Deputy President William Ruto’s proposal to nominate him for the East African Legislative Assembly position.
While addressing a section of his supporters within the constituency, the politician suggested the DP to instead hand over the position to his fiercest opponent Simon Mbugua’s wife.
Incidentally, Mbugua is EALA Member of Parliament.
Jaguar who rose to fame as a musician and was elected to Parliament for the first time in 2017, made the comment after the United Democratic Alliance (UDA), a political outfit associated with the DP, handed the ticket to Mbugua at his expense.
“The seat that he (the DP) wanted to give me should go to Mbugua’s wife. You cannot remove me here as a sitting MP and take me to Arusha. Give Mbugua’s wife that position because he (Mbugua) will not be elected here,” he said.
Jaguar has also announced he will try and recapture the seat as an Independent.
Jaguar lost his bid to contest on a UDA ticket after UDA told him a scientific opinion poll favored Mbugua.
He protested the outcome saying that party was favouring his opponent.
