He said he enrolled for the course to help him understand how to manage and interact with his constituents once elected.
“IT IS HARD FOR A COMMON ‘MWANANCHI’ TO BRING THAT CHANGE WE ARE ALL LOOKING FOR BUT NOT FOR A POLITICIAN. IT IS EASY TO BRING THAT CHANGE IF YOU ARE IN POLITICS AND NOT OUT,” HE SAID.
The Mungu Baba hitmaker and a gospel singer Smith Mwatia, alias Rufftone, has confirmed his interest in joining politics come 2022.

About the position, Rufftone said he has to sit down with his committee and be sure about it.
