MRC renounce MP

19 January 2015, 11:08 Mbungu Harrison

Mombasa - MRC group members have renounced Matuga Member of Parliament, Hassan Mwanyoha who was quoted as saying that he is the founder of the sect, and accused him of spoiling their name.

Mwanyoha had been quoted by sections of media saying he quit MRC after realizing that the group's agenda was to attack the government in the name of fighting for succession.

MRC Secretary General, Randu Nzai told Mwanyoha to keep off MRC activities since the group’s agenda is well known by the government.

“Our agenda is genuine and even the government knows that we will never at any time fight the government. Let him tell us which group he was in, because we have never seen him push for our agenda,” Randu said in a phone interview.

Mwanyoha said other members of MRC should follow suit and engage in development activities rather that fighting the government.

“I was among the members who launched the group. Our aim was to fight for the independence of the coastal region so it can become a republic on its own," he told a meeting at Baraza Park over the weekend.

Mombasa Republican Council has been linked to a series of attacks in the coastal region with the most recent ones having taken place at Mpeketoni, Kaloleni and the Nyali Barracks.

Randu, who was responding to Mwanyoha’s sediments, called for the arrest of the legislator for incitement.

He dismissed allegations that the outlawed group was currently recruiting new members in coastal forests even as some members are still in custody for receiving trainings and taking oaths in Kaloleni forest.

“Let him tell us why he quit if he was a member of  the group,” Randu charged.

On November 2, 2014 police shot dead suspected members of MRC in an attempt to attack Nyali Barracks. One soldier was killed in the incident.

In what was seen as a retaliatory attack, the members also attacked an Administrative Police officer at Kaloleni AP camp where they escaped with his gun after hacking him to death on December 12, 2014.
