Singer turned politician Charles Njagua has revealed that he was offered millions by some unnamed politicians in an attempted to bribe him to abandon his quest for the Starehe Jubilee parliamentary ticket ahead of the August polls.
The singer, popularly known as Jaguar, further reveals that way before the nominations exercise was conducted, he received several calls offering him huge amounts of money to drop out of the race as they had sensed he would win the ticket.
He disclosed that among those who contacted him were powerful Nairobi politicians and investors.
Jaguar’s disclosures come just days after he camped outside Jubilee House alongside his supporters demanding the Jubilee ticket following a dispute with incumbent Starehe MP Maina Kamanda.
“I don’t really want to talk about the intrigues behind the certificate as that is now behind us. I want to thank the party for listening to the appeal and declaring me the winner because I won squarely, “he said as quoted by the Standard.
The Kigeugeu hit maker thanked his supporters for standing with him during the appeal process. “I thank my supporters for standing with me as that is their right. The next step is for us to deliver the Starehe seat and that I assure you we will,” he added.
