Members of Parliament allied to Deputy President William Ruto have said they must be allowed to speak during the Building Bridges Initiative (BBI) rally scheduled to take place on Saturday, January 25 at Tononoka Grounds in Mombasa.

Addressing the press after a rowdy youth attempted to disrupt a presser by the leaders,  led by Nyali MP Mohamed ‘Jicho Pevu’ Ali (Nyali) and Malindi MP Aisha Jumwa said they have every right to voice coast residents’ concerns during the meeting planned to take place at Tononoka.


Jicho Pevu slammed Suna East MP Junet Mohamed and Mombasa Governor Hassan Joho who had sent a warning to Tanga Tanga MPs setting out tough conditions for attendance of the meeting.

“ Coast BBI will address issues to do with region’s infrastructure, jobs for youths, the SGR, cashewnuts, extra judicial killings and other issues that affect Coast residents,” said the MP.

He further warned Junet against dictating who will speak at the rally, saying he was just a visitor and such could not dictate who would speak at the meeting.

Freedom lies in being bold. BBI must be a peoples centered document not about political positions.Mtetezi wa Wanyonge Hon Mohammed Ali expressing Wanjikus concern fearlessly !

“ Junet, keep your Migori, we keep our Mombasa. We welcome you in Mombasa but you can’t plan for us who is going to address the rally. And we want to tell Joho that BBI is not your property.”

Early in the week, leader allied to DP Ruto said they would attend BBI meetings across the country along their Kieleweke counterparts.
