Mombasa,KENYA:The political temperatures are heating up and aspirants have started campaigning while presenting their manifestos to their electorates.
One of the people seeking an elective post is former KTN investigative journalist Mohamed Ali who quit his job to seek the Nyali parliamentary seat.
Ali who has recently been spotted in the company of ODM party principals including the Mombasa governor Ali Hassan Joho, recently surprised many when he threw jabs at governor Joho’s brother Said Abdalla Sido; who is also seeking that seat on an ODM ticket.
On his Facebook page the former investigative journalist, took jabs at Said accusing him of misleading women and young people in Nyali.
“Mapenzi majani huota popote. Kongowea is done and dusted. To the little pressure groups hanging around a toy boy you can’t stop an idea whose time has come. We are coming to reform you, give you good education, employment to save you from being used as slaves in Nyali Constituency. Being a brother to the Governor doesn’t give you the right to mislead young men and women. My message to you all is that we should not give up and we should not allow the problem to defeat us. If you want to know a good leader.
- Smallness of means
- Greatness of purpose but astounding results.
Msikubali akili ndogo kutawala akili kubwa. Asante Kongowea, Mungu awabariki. (Do not allow small minds to govern great minds)” Ali wrote.
Other aspirants seeking the Nyali parliamentary seat include businessman Ashraf Bayusuf and the GEMA chairperson for Mombasa Chrispus Waithaka.
