The man who want to bring down Mohammed Ali of jicho pevu fame and the defender of the downtrodden and fierce critic of Jubilee administration is Mohammed Hatimy. Hatimy is behind those fighting to have weak candidates endorsed and nominated to fly odm flag in the 2017 elections.
Khatimy known for bungling football in Kenya has now turned to eroding odm coast grassroots support in favour of his personal interests. Just like he thrived in divide and rule tactics at KFF where he never had a working relationship with ministers and other stakeholders only opting for those who sing his songs.
In June 2004 he was arrested soon after leaving ktn studios by police in the basement of I&M and taken to CID for alleged fraud. He was later charged in December and barred from contesting for coast branch football chair. Now as coast odm chair he has translated his bad traits to politics and frustrating vibrant upcoming politicians likes of Mohammed Ali whom he fears he can’t contain for their independent mindsets. He has gone ahead to bankroll bloggers to play dirt politics aimed at undermining and underrating those who doesn’t toe his path.
He is now even threatening to sack employees of mombasa county who hold contrary political opinions and great supporters of Mohammed Ali. Hatimy is a political broker and a conman who instead of uniting ODM aspirants, he is busy fighting the people’s choice in Nyali and wasting his energy endorsing MCA’S aspirant who sing his song and ready to do anything they are told within the county.
Despite being an ODM chair, Hatimy is busy campaigning for Governor Joho’s brother for Nyali MP Saeed Saleem also known as Saido and threatening Mohammed Ali’s supporters to stop wasting their time and energy since the ODM ticket is in his hand. So far 5 people have been fired by Saido for associating themselves with Jicho Pevu campaign team. Hatimy is also blamed for causing mayhem in mombasa county assembly as he serves his interest by using goons, pressure groups and county inspectorate officers and leading the assembly through remote control.
Those against his banditry leadership are Kongowea MCA Jabes Oduor, Riziki Fundi of Bamburi and Abdallah Kasagamba of likoni. Mohammed Hatimy was previously also accused of orchestrating removal of speaker Thaddeus Rajwayi during the two day chaos that rocked the assembly.
It is believed that Hatimy is engaged in all this political fights and struggle positioning himself for the position of county speaker 2017. His biggest worry is having vibrant leadership of upcoming young politicians like Jicho Pevu who will say no to bigotry and impunity. Hatimy fears Jicho Pevu stand and courage knowing very well that it will be difficult for him to control people when Mohammed Ali is in power.
Jicho pevu who is seen as Raila Odinga’s last born has been busy traversing Mombasa county, Kakamega, Kisii and holding talks in many universities campaign for Raila Odinga. He also spearhead the party activities through the Kikao Youth Initiative. The initiative has seen the party gain considerable ground among the youth population, one that shall play an integral role in the 2017 general elections.
With Hatimy’s KFF banditry style of leadership chances of securing ODM votes into one basket are minimal as Jubilee is busy taking advantage of the situation and building a strong team to counter Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho. According to political analyst in Mombasa, Hatimy’s coup against the likes of Mohammed Ali of Jicho pevu fame and Mvita MP Abdulswamad Sharrif will cause alot of problems for the Governor as voters are slowly turning their backs to Hatimy’s impunity of endorsing test tube politicians and doing away with the people’s choice. There is the need to elect leaders who live for the public and not off the public. For ODM to win big in Mombasa Hatimy must be slowed down.
