Mombasa - Mombasa County Assembly members were forced to suspend Tuesday evening session to discuss the conduct of four MCAs who have been accused of opposing Governor Hassan Joho's leadership.
The motion was presented in the assembly chambers by Fadhil Mohammed who accused MCAs Jabez Odour, Mohammed Ndanda, Mikindani Dan Onyango and Junda Paul Honje of abandoning the ODM party and siding with Wiper.
Fadhil alleged that the four MCA were opposing Governor Joho who doubles as their deputy party leader and siding with Nyali Member of Parliament Hezron Awiti of the Wiper party.
“We cannot have members of our party working towards derailing the growth of our party instead of fostering its manifesto,” said Fadhil.

However, the Mombasa County Assembly Speaker Thadeus Rajuwayi dismissed the motion and asked the members to discuss the issues in a political forum.
“This is a House of rules; such issues should be discussed in a political forum,” said Rajuwayi.
The Mombasa County Assembly is predominantly made up of CORD MCAs, majority of them affiliated to ODM party.
The four MCAs have been seen in the company of Nyali MP Hezron Awiti who is a sworn political enemy of the Mombasa Governor, Hassan Joho after he declared his interest in the Gubernatorial seat in 2017.
Awiti has been on record criticizing Joho on his management of the County and public funds.
