Joho in trouble after Nasa supporters abandon him

The Nasa supporters accused Joho of neglecting them for the last 4 years.

Shahbal when he was endorsed for Governor by the Kamba Community at Lohana hall, Mvita Constituency.

The Kamba community which is the second largest voting bloc in Mombasa County, have said that Joho neglected them for four years.

According to The Star, Shahbal held a meeting in Mvita Constituency with leaders from the community where he sold his manifesto to them.

Philip Ndolo, the Kamba Community Advisory Council leader and spokesperson led in the endorsement of Shahbal.

They complained that despite being the second majority voters after the Mijikenda, there is not a single nominated MCA or executive in Joho’s administration.

“Kambas want assurance that they will be included in the next Mombasa government. That is why we are behind Shahbal’s candidature,” Ndolo said.

Shahbal who is vying for the gubernatorial position on a Jubilee Party ticket, castigated Joho, saying he had failed in developing Mombasa.

He accused Joho of kicking hawkers out of Mombasa town without providing an alternative area to conduct business.

“You cannot kick out hawkers without building a market for them. The so-called Sultan has failed completely,” Shahbal said.

Shahbal said Kambas should support President Uhuru Kenyatta’s reelection because they will never benefit from NASA even if Raila wins the presidency.

Last month, transport was paralysed on the busy Abdulla Al-Farsy Road in Mombasa after angry traders took to the streets protesting against the demolition of their stalls by the county government.
