Popular Reggae DJ, Kriss Darlin yesterday caused a stir online after he knelt before Orange Democratic Movement (ODM) leader Raila Odinga in a public rally held at Kamukunji grounds, Kibra.
“I have heard that there are many young men in Parliament fighting Baba (Raila), allow me as their fellow youth to go fight them in there as you wait to fight in 2022,” he said. “Let them shoot me, if it means that you remain and lead in 2022… I ask that you hold my hand Baba…”
While on a phone call with The Star Kriss Darlin explained reasons for his action, “Raila, having been the area as MP for over two decades and because Kibra is one of the ODM’s zones in the city, he will have the final say on who succeeds Okoth,”he said.
He also added that even though Raila has the power over who gets the Kibra Constituency seat, the people of Kibra have the final say. “The people of Kibra have the final say. If elected I will represent the party, not just Raila,” he added.
He also added that he’s been of positive influence to the residents of Kibra, “I donate Sanitary towels to girls schools in Kibra constituency, I donate boxers to male children. I have a football tournament called Kriss darling Supercup that has been running for four years,” he said.
