Mwangi will be battling it out with ODM’s Steve Mbogo, Kigeugeu hit maker, and Jubilee party aspirant, Charles Njagua (Jaguar).

Among Mwangi’s top agendas is improvement of the working conditions of small business owners, hawkers and boda boda operators.

Just a week after launching his Ukweli Party in March, Mwangi raised Sh160,000 for campaigns from well wishers.

Among those he thanked for contributing to his campaign were a cobbler and a boda boda operator.
