My ri­vals are Joho pup­pets, says Gov­er­nor Mvurya

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics -

Kwale Gov­er­nor Salim Mvurya has ac­cused his Mom­basa coun­ter­part Has­san Joho of fi­nanc­ing some lead­ers to op­pose him af­ter he de­fected to the Ju­bilee Party from ODM.

Mvurya told res­i­dents at Magod­zoniTiwi in Matuga on Sunday they should not be scared of peo­ple sent by their masters to en­gage him. He said ODM top county lead­ers, in­clud­ing MP Has­san Mwany­oha, MP Suleiman Dori and Has­san Chitembe, are against him.

“If you hear them ac­cus­ing me of be­trayal, it sim­ply means I’ve gone against the dreams of their boss Joho. He can’t lead us be­cause he is the gov­er­nor of Mom­basa,” he said. Mvurya ac­cused Joho of plan­ning to “con­trol Kwale through his pup­pets”.
