But in a lengthy post on social media, Youtuber Xtian Dela now says he’s realized it was frustrating to work alone in the political murky world. He also noted he’d received so much ‘negativity’ since declaring intent to unseat incumbent MP Tim Wanyonyi ahead of the 2022 general elections.
“Too much negativity from the youth who I thought would support me. We are in the process of registering our own party. A party that is UNTAINTED and run by young people across the country. Not my project, but OUR project. Still, some people think I want to steal your cash or make cash from all this. I honestly want to do my best to make Kenya better, but I’m just alone. What can I do? How can I register a party without fundraising? Do I steal or get into shady deals? NEVER!! Why am I even bothering myself with all these na niko na hustles zangu na kuna mtoi anakuja?” he quipped.
