Joho, Marwa urged to bury the hatchet and work together

16 July 2014, 15:41 Mbungu Harrison

Mombasa - Two MPs from Mombasa County have urged the county's Governor Ali Hassan Joho and Commissioner Nelson Marwa to set aside their difference and work for Kenyans.

Nyali MP Awiti Bollo and his Mvita counterpart Abdulswamad Nassir want security issues respected since it’s not an individual's responsibility.

They want Joho and Marwa to convene a meeting and agree on issues affecting the county and stop dividing Mombasa residents.

"We want security to be restored and urge Joho and Marwa to come together and solve their issue," said Awiti.

On his part, Nassir raised concerns over the rising insecurity in the coastal area and called on the police to investigate the recent killing of Mombasa tycoon Mohammed Shahid by unknown people.

The two have for a while engaged in a war of words over office space and security matters a move that the leaders said would derail efforts of maintaining security in the region.

Joho has accused the Marwa of failing to provide enough security and also threatened to withdraw the police patrol vehicles issued to the police through a joint effort of the county government and the Mombasa business community.

He accuses Marwa of intimidating him because of his close ties with former Prime Minister and CORD leader Raila Odinga.

"I am not going to cut my ties with Raila, I voted for him and am not ashamed to say that, and if elections are called again today i will vote for him," he said.

Last week the two were engaged in a controversy over the Uhuru na Kazi building where Marwa’s offices are located.

Joho wants to occupy the fifth floor of the building with Marwa insisting that the building is the only image of the national government in the county and it should be left to operate the national government services.
