The Head of State and his deputy criticized Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho for failing to deliver his campaign manifestos to the residents of Mombasa.
President Uhuru Kenyatta had traveled to Jomvu sub-county for a rally and criticized Joho for failing to handle the garbage crisis in the city.
“Your leader here (referring to Governor Joho) has resorted to abusing me instead of delivering service to the people of Mombasa. He thinks by abusing me he is being a hero. But I tell him that abusing me will not give me sleepless nights. I will eat and sleep soundly,” he said as reported by the Daily Nation.
President Kenyatta and his Deputy William Ruto refuted claims that Jubilee had made plans to transfer the Mombasa port to Naivasha.
“We are telling your Governor to go back to school because education in Kenya is free. He cannot understand that we cannot transfer the port of Mombasa to Naivasha because of his questionable education,”Mr Ruto said.
The DP went on to state that the Sh40 billion for Mombasa bore no fruits. Thus pleading with the residents to vote differently in the upcoming election.
The two leaders stated how the opposition leaders had failed to develop anything over their 30 year period in leadership.
Mr Kenyatta and his deputy went to campaign support for the party candidates Suleiman Shahbal (governor), Senator Hazel Katana (senator), Amina Abdalla (Woman Rep), Karisa Nzai (Jomvu MP) and Masoud Mwahima (Likoni MP) to list a few.
