The much anticipated #PwaniDeclaration was executed at the historic Tononoka grounds successfully with a sea of humanity in attendance clad in Orange sending shockwaves to the inner sanctum of State House. Pundits termed the masses that turned up as ‘a miracle crowd’ never ever witnessed in the history of Kenya, not even the 2002 inaugration of president Kibaki at Uhuru Park could match it.
The rally was dubbed #PwaniDeclaration was hosted by Mombasa Governor His Excellence Ali Hassan Joho, Governor Mruttu and Governor Kingi. Chief guest was NASA supreme leader prime minister Raila Odinga. The rally was attended by other national leaders representing about 34 counties. All top coast region leaders were in attendance.
All speakers condemned president Uhuru for spearheading a malicious campaign against Governor Joho and abusing office by using state agencies to harrass governor Joho.
A source inside Statehouse revealed that Top statehouse tenant and top operatives followed Tononoka proceedings keenly and terrorized dozens of cigarettes due to tension. A top statehouse operative is said to have called a senior NIS officer and shortly afterwards a letter was produced allegedily from Kenya National Examinations council that disowns Governor Joho KCSE certificate- the aim a source said was to divert attention by adding anew twist to Joho’s academic background.
When Raila Odinga took the podium he criticized the government for presiding over the most corrupt regime in the history of Kenya. He questioned the KPA-Dubai port deal saying it reeked of corruption to the high heaven claiming that over KES 28 billion exchanged hands as a bribe
Raila took up the challenge by Coast leaders forum in which he committed to fulfil the five pointer Pwani declaration as follows:
