Xtian Dela Appeals To Kenyans To Support 2022 Political Dream
Mandela urged Kenyans to support his political dream as young professionals who want the best for the country.
Social media personality and political aspirant Arthur Mandela, alias Xtian Dela has appealed to Kenyans to help support his political roadmap to the Westlands MP seat come 2022.
In a long and emotional post on his Instagram page on Sunday, August 22, Mandela urged them to support his political dream as young professionals who want the best for the country.
''Time is running, I need help, I need people. Young professionals who want the best for Kenya. Young people who can send even 1 bob daily to fund this dream," he wrote in part.

The soon-to-be father promised to end the nightmare of joblessness among the youth by creating opportunities and a safe space. However, he is yet to come up with a manifesto even as the countdown to the polls is less than a year away.
“I haven’t started on my manifesto but one of the main things I must do in Westlands is creating jobs and safe spaces for young people to be creative and make money!
"This country is so messed up that I have to stop my private businesses to help run it. I have decided to be at the forefront of change rather than shout from the back! I believe true change starts with us," he declared.
Mandela was at the same time sharing his frustrations and social media bullying since his big announcement in May that he was vying for Westland's MP seat, a feat that could still see him take over from current MP Timothy Wanyonyi, who is nearing the end of his second term.
He also opened up on battling financial difficulties and cannot stage any political rallies being that he is not in any political party, despite his announcement that he is in the process of registering his own of the sort.
His contemplation to step down from politics in a manner similar to activist Boniface Mwangi has since drawn reactions from one section of fans who are for his decision, with the other urging him not to quit.
Mandela recently announced on social media that he and his video vixen girlfriend Fatma Banj are expecting a child together, with Fatma currently seven months pregnant after concealing it from the public eye.
