While speaking at a church service on Sunday, June 13 2021, Havi announced that he will vie for the Westlands Constituency parliamentary seat come 2022 general elections.
He stated that he would vie on former Vice President Musalia Mudavadi led Amani National Congress (ANC) Party ticket because the agenda for ANC is to improve the current economic state, which the Westlands area needs.
In his statement, the LSK President claimed that the problem with Westlands constituency is the lack of well-being and lack of jobs and promised to change the status of the area if elected.
“I have come here to ask for a chance to serve you in parliament as the Member of Parliament for Westlands,” Havi stated.
“I have a direction, which is the Amani National Congress (ANC). The problem with Westlands is the lack of well-being and lack of jobs. That is why the agenda for ANC is to improve the current economic state of the area,” he added.
