Langata MP Felix Odiwour, known as Jalang'o, is elated following the release of a recent survey conducted by Leeway Africa Research Agency. The survey ranked him among the top 10 best-performing parliamentarians in the country.
Claiming the 10th position on the list, Jalang'o is particularly thrilled, considering this is his inaugural term as a member of parliament. With a mere 8 months of being in office, his achievement brings him immense joy and satisfaction.
The Lang'ata member of parliament had this to say on his Instagram page, "No 10 is not bad for a first-time Mp in 8 months! I am sure tukiendelea hivi we will soon take our rightful position! Thank you my Langata people! Hapa ni kazi tu! Congratulations Hon Babu Owino."
Embakasi East member of Parliament Babu Owino was listed as the top followed by Karemba Muchangi of Runyenjes and Ndindi Nyoro of Kiharu.
Without a doubt, Jalang'o has made significant progress despite beginning at the very bottom. He recently disclosed that he is currently enrolled in aviation school to pursue his dream of becoming a pilot.
The congressman stated that after finishing his studies and receiving a license, his lifelong dream of being able to fly an airplane may soon come true.
"I just need a private pilot license. One day you will see a plane approaching the airport and it will be my voice asking the control towers for permission to land," he said.
In addition, Jalang'o disclosed that fellow celebrity DJ Joe Mfalme is enrolled in the same class as him. He explained that he had kept his enrollment in aviation school confidential to avoid criticism and unfounded accusations of funding his studies with public funds.
"DJ Joe Mfalme is in class, I am also in class, but I have never shared photos because people will start claiming that I am using public money which is not true," he explained.
Despite facing accusations of betraying his political party led by Azimio leader Raila Odinga, Jalang'o continues to navigate the challenges. Since entering the political arena, he has found himself at odds with his party leader. The friction began when he visited President Ruto at the State House, referring to it as a development-focused meeting.
However, in an interview with Spice FM, Jalang'o defended his visit, clarifying that it was not a political gathering but rather centered around matters of development. He emphasized that his intention was to engage in discussions pertaining to the advancement of various developmental agendas.
"There is no single campaign that I have not mobilized and been part of, so don't question my loyalty to Raila Amollo Odinga," he added.
