Mombasa,KENYA:Former investigative journalist Mohamed Ali, has accused Mombasa governor Ali Hassan Joho and his brother Abu Joho of sabotaging the party primaries in his strongholds in his constituency.
Speaking in Mlaleo primary school in Mombasa, one of the polling stations in the nominations, Moha who is eying the ODM ticket for Nyali constituency said that his name and those of other aspirants were missing from the IEBC register.
Ali urged the Joho family to stop meddling in the Party primaries.
“This is not fair . Joho and Abu should keep off this election. All our strongholds here are still closed”he said.
Moha has further called on the ODM elections board to cancel the Nomination exercise.
“The election here is not free and fair, it’s unfortunate that despite the large voter turnout, the voting exercise is not taking place”. He said.
However his remarks were disputed by his arch-rival who happens to be Joho’s kin Saido Abdallah Salim who is also eyeing the Nyali constituency party ticket on ODM who said that the election exercise which has already began at Kongowea social hall polling station ODM was peaceful.
However there was a bit confusion after ballot boxes meant to be used in Kongowea social hall were taken to Kengeleni polling station. Heavy security was seen manning the polling stations.
