However, in a press conference on Saturday, Marwa said he will not apologise to the youths since he spoke the truth.
“I don’t apologise for speaking the truth’, Said Marwa.
He further said he was aware some politicians in Mombasa had mobilised a section of youths to protest against him.

The youths did not say the action they were going to take against Marwa when he refuses to apologise.
