Jeff says having been born, in Mlango, he understands the problems of the people of Mlango better than anyone else.
Jeff who was a notorious thug between the year 2000 and 2005 was transformed by former Starehe MP Margaret Wanjiru.

The residents who voted for him say Jeff understands the problems of Mlango Kubwa residents very well hence the nomination
