Senator Omar's unexpected warning message to Uhuru
President Uhuru and governor Joho have in the recent past engaged in a political battle over development in Mombasa county.
Omar has told off President Uhuru to keep off the coastal region in pursuit for coastal votes in the ODM locked region.
He has argued that the persistent issues affecting Joho steered by the government only gives credit to Joho’s political career.
“Anyone who is not from Mombasa, be it the President or any other, keep off the politics of Mombasa so that the people of Mombasa can determine who they want to lead them,” Omar told Uhuru.
He added: “Leave that man (Joho) alone. We can deal with him."
In the recent past, President Uhuru and governor Joho have engaged in a political battle over development in Mombasa county.
The government has, through the Kenya Revenue Authority and Kenya National Examination Council, sought Joho for failing to remit taxes and forging KCSE documents to gain admission into the University of Nairobi.
“You are shifting the conversation of Mombasa County. We want that man with D- on the ballot. That tactic to bar him from the ballot is not viable. The guy is beatable. He has done nothing for the people of Mombasa,” said Omar.
The Senator said the respect and decorum with which he conducts himself should not fool anyone that he is too soft to deal with Joho in the political arena.
Omar also took a swipe at Nyali MP Hezron Awiti saying he left the Wiper party to form his own Vibrant Democratic Party as the heat in Wiper was too much for him to hold.
Awiti is set to launch his news party tomorrow (Tuesday), through which he will vie for the Mombasa Governor seat.
Awiti, however, said that he left the Kalonzo's Wiper party because there was too much favouritism at his expense and that the nominations would not have been free and fair.
“Don’t think he left because the nominations would have not been free and fair. It is because we were well prepared. If you say ‘Ho’ we prepare ourselves. If you say ‘Ha’, we continue preparing ourselves,” Omar said.
