All Roads lead to #UwanjaMbuzi community stadium in Kongowea, Nyali where Governor Joho together with his runningmate Dr Wiliam Kingi are expected to officially open the facility to the public.
The launch is ahead of schedule after intelligence reports indicated that DP Ruto wanted to launch it as a Jubilee project although it is a fully funded by Joho’s government. DP Ruto is reported to have changed his mind after intelligence reports indicated that locals were likely to stone him (throw shoes at him).
Meanwhile there will be showdown in Likoni later today afternoon as Gov Hassan Joho is set to Join Deputy president William Ruto to launch of water project initiated by the county government of Mombasa …. Deputy Ruto was to launch to the project in abscebce of Joho BUT the county boss and locals have made it clear that its a county project and therefore Joho will attend whether Ruto likes it or not.
Uwanja wa mbuzi modern communty stadium is among the many projects Mombasa county initiated ..
Yesterday Mombasa resident issued this statement that warned DP Ruto of ridding on County Projects to promote Jubilee
JUBILEE MUST SHUN AND DESIST FROM RIDDING ON COUNTY GOVERNMENT PROJECTS
Reliable information reaching us is that DP William Ruto is scheduled to launch the LIKONI DMA PROJECT .
This project entails creation of a new water network in Likoni to prepare Mombasa to absorb water.
The project is a fully County Government of Mombasa’s initiative through the leadership of H.E Governor Hassan Ali Joho. The Governor signed the 2B Water Purchase Agreement in Paris in 2015 in the presence of the Minster for Water Wamalwa where the County Government of Mombasa took responsibility of this project.
Up until now the County Government of Mombasa has been in charge of the project even conducted public Baraza’s in different wards in Likoni to inform the residents of about the project.
The funds came through the National government because there is no mechanism in place to allow for direct transfer of funds to the Counties.
Water is a devolved function and therefore it is unconstitutional, obnoxious, and ridiculous for the National Government to claim ownership of a project initiated by the County Government due to the fact that they control the finance.
We therefore ask the Government of Jubilee to shun mere PR gimmicks apted to deceive the coastal people that they are development oriented whilst they ride on county Projects.
