I’ll account for the Sh10 million raised for my Starehe MP campaign – Boniface Mwangi

Activist Boniface Mwangi will provide details of how the over Sh10 million shillings raised for his Starehe MP bid was spent.

The Ukweli Party politician conceded defeat to Charles Njagua aka Jaguar who clinched the seat under the Jubilee Party umbrella.

In a statement on Sunday, Mwangi said he will sanction an audit of the campaign cash in his bid to change Kenyan style of politics.

“All the money that was donated, from as little as Sh10, towards making our campaign a great success will be accounted for.”

He attached a summary of how his campaign team spent the Sh10,658,470 they received from supporters and well-wishers.

Of these, he said marketing materials took up 37 per cent, 25 per cent went to billboards and exhibitions, and 17% on
payment of field staff among them agents.

Mwangi said that 13 per cent of the cash was spent on campaign logistics while 8 per cent was used to run a call centre he opened ahead of the August 8 polls.

“A more detailed expenditure report will be shared after an audit,” he said.

The activist turned politician further lauded his supporters as well as those who funded his campaigns despite his team losing the seat.

ODM’s Steve Mbogo was second in the race that was hailed for attracting youthful politicians.

“We have challenged the old ways and we have triumphed over them. We may not have won, but our impact will be felt for many elections to come.”

“We are the movement that will take back our country and give it to the people,” Mwangi said.
