Jubilee brigade in Mombasa have reassured their party leader President Uhuru Kenyatta that they will capture all the seats in Mombasa through the Jubilee party.

Mombasa Jubilee Senatorial candidate Abdulsalaam Ali Kassim said they are up to the task and Uhuru should not doubt their efforts.

Addressing the media on Saturday in Mombasa Abdulsalaam said the team is ready to bring to an end the term that Mombasa is a CORD zone.

“If you asked me that question whether Mombasa is a CORD zone or in 2013 I would have agreed with you but as for now things have changed and wait you will see for yourself come August polls” Abdgulsalaam said.

He said Mombasa residents are economically behind following to the poor leadership that is being experienced at the moment.

Abdulsalaam said they will mount a very dignified campaign which will respect the rule of the law by conducting their campaigns in a friendlier manner with only one mission and goal – capturing the Mombasa seats.

He dismissed reports that Jubilee is not financing its candidates terming it as a sideshow to demoralize their efforts.

Earlier some candidates had expressed displeasure before Senator Beth Mugo in the manner which the party conducted its affairs in county.

The first time candidate appealed to all Jubilee candidates in Mombasa to conduct their campaigns peaceful insisting that peace was paramount in every activity.

Meanwhile Wipper party committee Changamwe constituency said has vowed not to support the party candidate Daniel Mwinge but will instead support Peterson Mitau,

Addressing a press conference on Saturday the party chairman Jackson Malii accused the secretary general of the party for medaling around with the party primaries.

They further claimed that Mitau refused to heed a demand by the secretary general a thing which made him lose the party nomination.

“The secretary General wanted some amount from me so that he can finance his campaign for Mombasa gubernatorial seat but I refused to give him not knowing that he wouldl retaliate by denying me the nomination” Mitau said

In an earlier event Hassan Ali Sarai said no one wins in a party primary unless the party boss agrees to have him or on board.

Sarai was making a keynote address note at the 31st Annual ICPAK conference at Sarova White sands in Mombasa sometime back.

Mitau has so far decided to go it independently.
