- Mohammed Ali has condemned secession calls by NASA leaders from coastal region
- The first time MP declared that the coastal region is and will always be part of Kenya
Nyali MP Mohammed Ali has hit out at secession calls by NASA leaders from the coastal region.
In a long Facebook post on November 17th, Ali told off the leaders, urging them to instead tackle problems such as poor garbage collection, unemployment among the youth and drug and substance abuse.
According to Ali who vied as an independent candidate, he read naught in the move by the NASA leaders, seeing it as a move meant to benefit the politicians and their families.
“Acheni kibri na chuki! Wapendeni wenzenu kwa kuwasaidia, kuwaelimisha na kupanua rasilimali ya pwani. Hizi ndoto zenu za kutaka kujitenga ili mzidi kuwanyonya wapwani damu au kutumia semi hizo kama chambo cha kujinufaisha na familia zenu komeni” wrote Ali.
Ali, who is also an investigative journalist, questioned the leaders’ agenda in calling for secession of Mombasa, for they criticised the same move by the Mombasa Republican Council (MRC) in 2012.
“MRC walisukumwa na shida, dhulma na kutaka haki zao kama wapwani. Hawakuwa na chama ila haki. Mlinyamaza wakiteseka kisha leo mwaja na kauli mbiu yenyu ya kunyonya damu za watoto wetu maana hiyo tu ndio imesalia. Bahari mnaikausha kwa kujenga bandari zenu, nyumba na biashara zenu kisha mwatudang’anya eti pwani si kenya. Leo nawaambia pasi na woga kuwa pwani ni Kenya na itasalia kuwa kenya” stated Ali.
The secession calls were earlier made by Mombasa governor Hassan Joho and his Kilifi counterpart Amason Kingi should the IEBC hold polls on October 26th, where Uhuru Kenyatta was declared winner.
