Balala launches his new party

02 October 2012, 17:37

Mr. Najib Balala has launched his new party, Republican Congress party of Kenya (RC) that is intended to lead him to the national parliament as a Senator representing Mombasa County.

Speaking at the Jubilee Hall in Mombasa where he launched the party, Mr. Balala stated that he had seen the importance of leaders from the Coast region uniting and that he decided to form a new party not only on his behalf but also as a means of uniting the Coast region as a whole.

 Mr. Balala stated that he expects total support from all parts of the country as a form of payback to the way the coastal region has done for the past days since independence.

He added that his party has kept much of its concern on security, land issues, poverty eradication and education in its manifesto.

 “We don’t intend to go on experiencing same issues of other people coming to our land and overrule us and our resources in defense that we are not educated”, he said.

In accompany with him during the launch were the aspiring member of parliament for the new Nyali constituency on the ticket of TNA party Mr. John Mburu, the aspiring governor Mombasa county Mr. Ibrahim Babangida who is a  member of the RC party, and Esir Timani who is aspiring for the governorship of Lamu county.

On his side, Babangida said that honorable Balala had done the best thing to form his own party linking him to costal legends as from Mekatilili WA Mensa to Karisa Maitha saying that the coastal community believes in him into bringing light to the coastal region.

He also stated that the biggest enemy of coast is the Coast itself as they are the same people who will call their party as one not well versed to lead them into the political enrichment.

He emphasized on peace before, during and after the forthcoming general elections that will be of a kind since the country gained independence.
