Nobody can stop reggae — Jamaican reggae artiste endorses Mariga

By Vincent Kejitan | Nov 2nd 2019 | 1 min read

Jamaican reggae artiste Kenyatta Hill is set to perform on Sunday, November 3, 2019, in a campaign rally to drum up support for Kibra by-election candidate McDonald Mariga.

This was confirmed by Dennis Itumbi who stated that Hill has endorsed the former Harambee Stars midfielder.

The artiste, who is the son of the late Joseph Hill, singer and songwriter for the legendary Jamaican vocal trio Culture, said he is rooting for Mariga and believes he is the right choice for the people of Kibra.

“I am coming to celebrate with Mariga who promised us that he will help nurture the talents of young people.

“I am coming to show my support for this brother,” he said.

Adding: “It will be a party.”

The by-election is seen as a supremacy contest between ODM leader Raila Odinga and Deputy President William Ruto.

ODM candidate Bernard Imran Okoth, Jubilee’s Mariga and Eliud Owalo of Amani National Congress have in recent days tried to convince locals to give them a chance to lead.

Yesterday, Raila tore into Ruto, accusing him of making false promises to Kibra voters.

“He is the Deputy President, for heaven’s sake, what was stopping him from doing all this only to wait for this time to start making empty promises to the people of Kibra?” the ODM leader posed.
