Marwa calls for the sacking of ferry MD over delays

08 May 2015, 15:06 Ken Wekesa

Mombasa - Mombasa County commissioner, Nelson Marwa has called for the immediate sacking of the Kenya Ferry CEO over poor planning and management of the Likoni ferry crossing channel.

Marwa said the long traffic jams experienced at the ferry crossing have disrupted business activities and learning in Mombasa.

Speaking to the press at a security meeting in Mombasa, Marwa said the MD should be held responsible for delays caused by the long queues that stretch into the Mombasa CBD.

“We demand efficiency at the ferry crossing. The MD has failed in planning and organizing the facility; we will sack him if he can’t manage it ptoperly,” said Marwa.

The County Commissioner also called for the prosecution of port individuals who were involved in trafficking of elephant tusks that were nabbed in Bangkok.

He said they had information on the container that was used to traffic the tusks to Thailand and the government is awaiting information from the Port Authority on how the tusks were sneaked out in a container exporting tea leaves.

“We demand to know how the tusks were exported and we want KRA and individuals who cleared the container that left the port on April 6, 2015 to be held responsible,” he said.

He reiterated that there was need to restore sanity at the Mombasa port and warned the individuals who were using it to benefit themselves.

Marwa also called upon school heads to be more vigilant and ensure that the Mandera incident does not replicate itself in Mombasa County, urging them to work closely with security offers and record detailed information of all people visiting their schools.
