Mombasa - The recent wrangles at the Mombasa County Assembly seem to be drawing attention of leaders from various quarters, including the regional coordinator Nelson Marwa who has bashed the MCAs for tarnishing the image of the County.
The outspoken and fearless Coast Administrator said on Tuesday that the daily fights at the County assembly chambers was a sign of laziness and recklessness of the leaders, a habit that must be stopped.
“If what they are doing will bring development to the County, let them continue,” added Marwa.
The Regional administrator criticized the County assembly members for failing to serve locals at grassroots, saying their continuous bickering is total failure of the assembly.
Marwa further appealed to the area Governor, Ali Hassan Joho and Senator Hassan Omar together with the Mombasa Women representative Mishi Juma Mboko to intervene and ensure that the MCAs are back to business.

On Tuesday morning, the MCAs who are now divided into two groups were back in the ring exchanging blows.
Led by nominated MCA Fatuma Kushe, they blocked Likoni ward representative Abdallah Kasagamba, who is the leader of majority, from accessing his office.
“We do not recognize Kasagamba as the leader of majority; our leader of majority is Mtongwe ward representative Khamis Mwidani,” said Kushe.
Another nominated MCA, Mohammed Khattmy who has been pushing for the ouster the County Assembly Speaker Thadius Rajwayi, said that Kasagamba has no place in the leadership of the office.
However, Kasagamba told them off, noting that such political bickering in uncalled for.
The same day, several leaflets were dropped in the assembly chambers warning Kasagamba and Rajwayi that their days were number and ordering them to vacate office immediately.
