Social media personality Arthur Mandela, popularly known as Xtian Dela has divulged he is contemplating quitting politics owing to relentless frustrations he has had to grapple with since announcing his political bid.
Dela claims that since expressing his political ambitions, he has dealt with online and in-person bullying, to a point that he stopped going out.
He further says young people whom he would want to help so bad if he snagged the Westlands MP seat feel he has ulterior motives.
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,” read his post in part.
“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 this na niko na hustles zangu na kuna mtoi anakuja?” he quipped.
The social media star announced his bid a few months ago, saying he would be vying for Westlands’ parliamentary (MP) seat.
Dela recently announced that he is expecting his first child with girlfriend Fatmah Banj.
