• Alinur expressed how disappointed he was since he had invested his all in the MP race, including selling his property.
• Kamukunji has been zoned as a Jubilee area and Alinur was intending to vie on an ODM ticket.
Hon Alinur Mohamed who is fondly called 'Somali Bae' in showbiz scenes has cried foul after he was allegedly asked to step out of the Kamukunji MP race in favour of a Jubilee Party candidate.
Alinur, who was contesting on an ODM party ticket has been requested to step down for the incumbent Kamukunji MP Yusuf Hassan Abdi who is a member of Jubilee.
Through his social media, Alinur expressed how disappointed he was since he had invested his all in the MP race, including selling his property.
"I have been campaigning for the last four years, selling my agenda to the people and doing lots of activities to change lives in Kamukunji Constituency," he wrote.
Alinur added that it has now come to a point where people have no choice but to elect their leaders.
"I have sold my property worth millions of shillings and used the money to campaign just to ensure my dream of serving the people comes true.
Unfortunately, Kamukunji Constituency has been zoned for the Jubilee Party making it impossible for the people of Kamukunji to have the leader of their choice. This is very painful, this is frustrating and it is a threat to our democracy."
Alinur's outbreak comes a few weeks after singer Bahati's win was recalled for the Mathare MP seat.
"I am being told that I need to recall the certificate and step down for the sitting MP since he(MP) feels threatened and he feels that if I am in the ballot box, the seat will not go back to ODM which I have said no," Bahati said in a press conference before breaking into tears.
