Mombasa County Assembly Majority Leader impeached

Mombasa County Assembly Majority Leader impeached

There was trouble at the Mombasa County Assembly Friday when a section of county officials ousted the County Majority Leader, Abdallah Kasangamba, on grounds that he is unable to unite the members.

While some of the members cited the continued wrangles between those supporting Mombasa County Governor, Hassan Ali Joho, and those opposed to his leadership as the reason behind the impeachment, others argued that due process was followed in the impeachment process.

Speaking shortly after a scuffle between the two sides, Kasangamba and his Bamburi Ward counterpart, Riziki Kitsao, blamed the Governor and Mombasa County ODM chairperson, Mohammed Hatimy, for the division and conflicts witnessed in the County Assembly.

“Hatimy and his associates want to do things the way they please without considering the input of others,” said Kitsao.

However, the ODM chairperson and the Tononoka Ward MCA, Saad Faraj, dismissed claims that they were not cooperating with those who were opposed to Kasangamba’s removal from office reiterating that he is unfit to hold the position and that out of the 42 Members of the County Assembly, 29 signed a vote of no confidence in Kasangamba’s leadership.

According to the leaders, Khamis Mwidani, has been chosen to take over the position of Mombasa County Majority Leader.

Kasangamba, who claims that he was ejected from office and his door locks changed without valid reasons, now alleges that his life is in danger.
