Mombasa County MCA’s wrangles far from over

25 June 2016, 12:59 Gabriel Ngallah

Mombasa - The Mombasa County assembly wrangles are far from over after a section of the County assembly members decided to appoint Mtongwe Ward representative Khamis Mwidani as the new leader of majority within the assembly.

The move did not go well with a section that support the former leader of majority Abdallah Kasagamba including the Speaker Thadius Rajwayi who said that the county is now being operated as a private entity instead of a public platform.

The group of members of the County assembly led by Nominated members Mohammed Hattmy and Fatma Kushe insisted that Kasagamba should keep off the Leader of majority office as Mwidani has now been officially  appointed for the post.

Hattmy said that the wrangles will only end if the members of the County assembly adhere to the rules and laws governing the assembly and desist from flouting such regulations.

“We want a capable leader of majority who can act and work in line with party rules and regulation and not and individual who is against the party rules” added Hattmy.

However, Bamburi Ward representative Riziki Fundi accused Hattmy and Kushe for interfering with the County assembly planned activities as guided by the law insisting that Hattmy is being used by powerful politicians and other investors in causing conflict within the County house.

“Hattmy is not a serious leader who can oversea any motion or development agenda for Mombasa County residents, he is here to cause conflict, we all know how Kasagamba was very hardworking individual” He said.

On Friday, ODM Mombasa island branch chair Geoffrey Busaka announced that Mwidani was the official leader of majority for the County assembly and Kasagamba should forget the office.

Locals have raised their dissatisfaction over the manner in which Mombasa county assembly has been operating in the past three months where it turned out to be a wrestling arena.
