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," he added.
