MP storms out of Mashujaa Day celebrations

20 October 2015, 18:41 Ken Wekesa

Mombasa - Nyali MP, Hezron Awiti stormed out of the podium during the Heroes day celebrations at the Mombasa county stadium following remarks made by his Kisauni Counterpart, Rashid Benzimba.

Benzimba had addressed the public shortly after Awiti where he called upon him to focus on his parliamentary and constituency issues instead of eyeing the gubernatorial seat.

“My brothers, don’t let these people to lie to you; they will not vote for you in coming polls. Just focus on your constituency they will leave you for the dead when that time comes,” said Benzimba.

The sentiments did not sit well with Awiti who left the podium in a hurry accompanied by his followers.

Awiti is the only vocal leader in the county, having put the governor on the spot over his running of the county government. Recently, he also declared his interest in the gubernatorial seat in 2017.

The Nyali Mp had also called for an audit to ascertain the amount of money he claimed was being wasted by the governor through his foreign trips.

However, Mombasa county commissioner Nelson Marwa called upon the leaders to shun the political tension and focus on development projects.

“I am wondering way they fight yet many of the youth here do not have national Identity cards to vote for you,” said Marwa.

He revealed that there were 4 000 ID cards that have not yet been collected despite the government having made efforts to reach the applicants.

The county commissioner also warned that the government will not tolerate emerging militia groups that have been escorting politicians to political rallies.

“We will not allow politicians to attend public rallies accompanied by militia in the name of security officers. If you want security, we are ready to provide even 20 police officers,” said Marwa.

He further said such gangs have been alleged to be harassing people in the streets and police will stop them to prevent assignation in the coming campaigns.
