Three days after Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho launched an offensive attack on the Deputy President William Ruto over his recent visit to the county, Nyali MP Mohamed Ali alias Jicho Pevu has come out to answer back the governor.
Addressing the press on Sunday in Mombasa, Ali, who is a charming supporter to the DP, accused Joho saying he should not criticize Ruto for helping Mombasa youth, rather should try to cut down his lavish expenditure and use the funds to help those in need in the county.
He warned him against taking the residents for a ride, adding that his political glory was coming to an end in the coastal region.
“Since when have you, as a governor used a bicycle to work yet you are busy telling us that Ruto is not a hustler but one of the dynasties? Don’t take us for fools, your days are over and we have served your notice,” communicated Ali.
While reminding Joho that Ruto was not his equal, the defiant MP laughed off the governor and Raila for evading major stadiums in Mombasa and instead resorted to roadside meetings, saying the two no longer enjoys massive followings in the region.
“Dear Governor Joho, Deputy President of the Republic of Kenya William Ruto is not your age mate…you are used to local politics but Ruto is playing national politics…you will be humiliated,” warned the MP.
“They are now on their own, that’s why they can’t hold a meeting in Tononoka, Mama Ngina, or even in any of the open fields at Kisauni. You decided to take your meetings to the newly constructed Bombolulu road so as to create a jam and trap some audience,” he added.
At the same time, the vocal MP hit out at Joho and Raila for propagating about the BBI in the region instead of talking about issues affecting the region.
He wondered why the two never talked about the SGR and Revenue Allocation issues which he said are affecting the coastal people.
“We know you Joho is hiding inside the handshake and BBI because you know you will be held accountable over the misuse of public funds once you get out of Raila’s camp,” alleged Ali
Ali’s sentiments come just some hours after the ODM party leader Raila Odinga ended his three-day visit to the region in a move to curb Ruto’s influence, who was ion the region a week ago.
Raila is expected next in Kisii county in a move that has seen many criticize him of copying William Ruto’s political moves. Ruto was in Kisii last week, where he was massively received by the residents.
