Mombasa, KENYA: Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho has vowed to take a stern action on Jubilee leaders in power immediately after the August elections, on claims that they are not willing to address the needs of the ordinary Kenyan.
Addressing Mombasa residents during the annual Idd Council celebrations at the Treasury Square on Monday, the county boss said the prices of essential commodities have increased sharply during the Jubilee administration, making the lives of ordinary Kenyans difficult.
The county official added that once the opposition government is voted in in the next administration, the operations of the port will be streamlined in order to uplift the standards of living of the Coastal dwellers.
“The price of most essential commodities has been hiking. Once the opposition comes into power the operations of the port will be streamlined for the benefit of the coastal residents.” He said.
Joho accused president Uhuru Kenyatta for launching faulty development projects throughout the country in the name of fulfilling pledges he made during the 2013 general elections and added that the government has been going the wrong direction all the time despite being matters of national importance.
He pointed out that the role of any government is to unite all the tribes regardless of colour, race, creed and religious affiliations and further pleaded for unity amongst all Kenyans as the nation gears towards the August elections.
“The jubilee government has been launching many of the devolved units all in the name of fulfilling 2013 pledges. I believe the role of any government is to bring all her citizens together.” He said.
Also in attendance at the Idd Baraza, were Mombasa Deputy County Commissioner Salim Mohammed, Changamwe legislator Omar Mwinyi, Kisauni Member of Parliament Rashid Bedzimba, Mombasa senatorial aspirant Mohammed Faki and other top religious leaders.
The vocal governor has always been at loggerheads with President Uhuru Kenyatta on claims of re-launching projects that he claims belong to the county government.
