"Nothing would count without God Above. I thank the People of Starehe for having the confidence and trust in me to represent them in Parliament. I thank all my supporters, friends and family who stayed out late campaigning. I also congratulate my Worthy Opponents; Steve Mbogo, Boniface Mwangi and Hon Kwenya who put up well spirited campaigns. This is not only a win for Starehe but a win for all the youth in Kenya who look towards a more promising future for Kenya. Let's now build the Starehe that we all want. God bless you all."
Jaguar is the first musician to enter the Kenyan parliament. In Uganda, Hon Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu aka Bobi Wine continues to make headlines. In Tanzania, Prof J and Josephi Mbilinyi are also in parliament making a total of four in East Africa.
