Ali has accused his rivals of Cooking evidence in the process of seeking his removal at the Helm of Nyali Constituency has the MP.
"They will not succeed as there is no case. Someone is cooking evidence. Police are deeply involved," Said Mohammed Ali after recording a statement at the Mombasa DCI.

They also said they are following leads to apprehend culprits who may have been involved in the malpractices.
Ali was interrogated for about 30 minutes on the matter.
"I find it suspicious that I have been summoned a month after the poll. It shows how desperate police and their sponsors are," the MP said.
He said on Election Day there were two suspicious incidents that took place.
"One was in Kongowea, where my driver was roughed up and assaulted, but we responded with restraint," he said.
Ali said the second incident involved police firing at demonstrators at Freer town after electricity to a polling station was disconnected.
Ealier in the month, Ali claimed Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho's brother Abu has been coercing women and his supporters to pen statements admitting involvement in electoral offences to aid his win.
The MP said the aim is to build a petition challenging his election at the High Court.
A voter has already moved to court challenging Ali's election.
Ali, an independent candidate, defeated Joho's cousin Said Abdalla of ODM by more than 10,000 votes.
Abu, through county director of communication Richard Chacha, denied the allegations saying he will not engage in pettiness.
