“I don't know how to celebrate this... I don't know if I should cry or pray... this is a dream come true not only to me as Bahati; But to the Youth & my people of Mathare who for so long have been praying for an MP made in Mathare,” he said in part.

In his acceptance speech, the Barua hitmaker acknowledged that it was not easy going up against experienced and veteran politicians during the party elections.

“For sure it's not been easy competing against all those veteran politicians and I would like to say thank you for choosing me as the most popular candidate in Mathare!” he said.
