The first time legislator pointed an accusing finger at his perennial foe Mombasa Governor Ali Hassan Joho whom he accused of sending the ‘rowdy and intoxicated youth’ to disrupt their address, casting doubts over the real intentions of the BBI.

“If this is the BBI that they want then it is not about uniting Kenyans. If BBI is about uniting, Joho cannot be sending those goons to us,” he ranted.

The BBI brigade is set for Mombasa on Saturday with the venue being shifted from Tononoka grounds to Mama Ngina Drive.

Ali claims there are secret meetings being held by the Raila-led team in bid to bar them from addressing the congregation on Saturday, warning that that will serve to the detriment of the BBI.

Ali and Jumwa are some of the legislators considered allies of Deputy President William Ruto who is rated as the most vocal critic of former Prime Minister Raila Odinga.

“Tutakuwa Tononoka by all means. Sisi ndo tutaeleza shida ya pwani. Kesho maslahi namba moja ni wapwani. Huu upumbabu wa kuletewa hapa ati viongozi wa pwani hawataongea, wao ndo wataongea hiyo hatutakubali,” the first time lawmaker said.

The Nyali MP cautioned against entertaining violence in the wake of BBI rallies, insisting that the country was going a wrong way.

According to the former investigative journalist, the BBI popularize-rs should not propagate violence as it may come back to haunt them.

“Today they are attacking us, they are planning to go to Eldoret, they are planning to go to Meru… what they are doing to us here will be done to them there,” he stated.
