Kamba coun­cil pours cold wa­ter on Kalonzo tour

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Coast -

Mem­bers of the Kamba com­mu­nity in Mom­basa on Satur­day reaf­firmed their sup­port for politi­cian Philip Ndolo as their leader.

The move came a few hours af­ter de facto Kamba com­mu­nity and Wiper leader Kalonzo Musyoka jet­ted into the county for a ma­jor rally.

Ndolo is lead­ing mem­bers of the Kamba com­mu­nity to the Ju­bilee Party, where they say they want their num­bers to count.

“This should not be seen in any other way apart from an ad­vi­sory coun­cil and Kamba com­mu­nity iden­ti­fy­ing a leader,” said Sammy Kisilu, the Kamba Com­mu­nity Ad­vi­sory Coun­cil chair­per­son.

The Kamba com­mu­nity in Mom­basa want Ndolo to be the run­ning mate of a Ju­bilee can­di­date. “We want to be in govern­ment,” said coun­cil women ad­viser Ruth Mulei.

Ndolo worked closely with busi­ness­man Suleiman Shah­bal but their re­la­tion­ship has be­come strained.

How­ever, Shah­bal, who will run for gov­er­nor, has said he is open to work with any­body.
