He claims he was attacked on Sunday night after attending a rally in Mathare.

Renowned Singer and Jubilee's Mathare MP candidate Kelvin Bahati Kioko now claims his life is in danger.

The singer who has had a push and pulls with his Azimio Coalition over calls to step down has accused his opponents of sending goons to rough him up.

He claims he was attacked on Sunday night after attending a rally in Mathare.

The goons who attacked him, he says, tore his Jubilee party t-shirt during the alleged raid.

This comes after he declined a job offer from ODM leader Raila Odinga on Sunday, July 17, in the Mathare constituency.

In a video he shared on his Instagram page, Kioko alleged that his opponent, whom he did not mention by name, is on his case for refusing to step down.

"Today has been one of the hardest days in my campaign life and the hardest day in my political career. You know I have gone through a lot over the last couple of days and God is good, God is faithful we are here, " Bahati said.

He added that his candidature has been a threat to some of his opponents who are keen on bringing him down.

"If someone fears me that much to an extent of sending people and threatening my life, clearly he knows that I will help the people of Mathare," added Bahati.

He added: "I urge my Mathare people even if they keep fighting me not to give up, 9th August our lives will never be the same again. Let's bring change and let's vote for one of our own.

The singer further said he will not accept calls to step down adding that he will be on the ballot come August 9.

"It started with getting a lot of challenges and fights of course from my opponent who wanted them to take away my ticket which I was given, the other side they, " he said

"They wanted me to be given a government appointment which I also refused. I have to be brave and I have to do what it takes because I am fighting for the people of Mathare. I have to repeat this again, I had a job and I have a job as a musician."
