Mombasa county Governor Hassan Joho has yet again accused government top spy unit National Intelligence Service (NIS) of circulating hate leaflets in the areas.
Despite never tabling any evidence to his claims, the self-proclaimed Sultan of coastal politics said the move was in a bid to cause voter apathy in the region perceived as an opposition stronghold.
“Intelligence wants to spread fear, so that people flee the town, and cause voter apathy. [Coast regional coordinator Nelson] Marwa is here, [President] Uhuru [Kenyatta] and [DP William] Ruto too. I promise you that come August 8, even if you bomb us, we will be at the polling station voting. And we will eject you,” he said.
“Mombasa is a peace-loving county [where] no one will lift a finger to hurt his neighbour," he added.
He spoke at Mvita grounds on Sunday when ODM nominees converged to drum up support for their bids.
