Speaking to NTV after the win Bader said he was grateful to the people of Musambweni for giving him a chance to serve them.
He said Dori was a great MP who was loved by many and it would be unfair for him to come up with his own agenda’s without completing what the late had started.
“I want to promise the people of Msambweni that I will fulfill all the promises but during my first days as their MP, I have to see that what my good friend Dori had started is accomplished,” he said.
“It has been a tough campaign period amid coronavirus perhaps being the longest campaign period. But for over seven months, I had confidence that I would win but I could not underestimate my opponents,” he said.
Bader said the campaign period is now over and the people of Msambweni have spoken and their will must prevail.
