Nyali Member of Parliament Hezron Awiti Bolo has reiterated that he will be vying for Mombasa Governorship seat come 2017.

Awiti who had already declared interests in the Governor’s seat , is accusing his  political opponents of trying to spread rumors  that he will be a somebody’s running mate come August 2017 general elections.

“2016 is a politicking year, They are spreading rumors that I am not going to run. Tell them I am nobody’s running mate and I will not be cowed by what my opponents say against me. I will be the governor of Mombasa come 2017” Awiti told the press over the weekend.

The Nyali Legislator warned Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho against letting loose officers from the county inspectorates , accusing them of harassing and intimidate innocent residents particularly small scale businesspersons.

“The Governor needs to take charge of this askaris , they are not traffic officers nor are they police officers,  why should they be harassing people at night , they should leave police to  do security work at night” Awiti added.

He however , thanked the Police in Mombasa for boosting security in the county during X-Mas and New Year holidays  and asked them to continue with the trend and make the county a security friendly environment for both residents and tourists.
